Supporting Research

Decades of research shows that, to help teachers to grow, we must think of professional development as a collective process rather than an event. We must support teachers to collaboratively engage with theory, modeling, feedback and coaching in the context of their own classrooms. However, practical barriers like timetables and distance often get in the way. IRIS Connect removes these barriers, enabling cost-effective, impactful, professional learning at scale. Here’s some of the latest research confirming the effectiveness of our solution:
