Evidence-based teaching is teaching that benefits both from existing educational research and from evidence collected as teaching unfolds. It is undertaken in the spirit of inquiry, with the enrichment of the learning experience as its goal.
“[F]aculty do their best work as teachers when they engage in inquiry… this inquiry produces its most fruitful and useful results when it is focused on learning and learners.”
