Engaging in and with research

Welcome to this developing area of our website. We will be posting links and resources to help you:

  • Engage with research: Supporting you as you read and explore research through your own study or with others.
  • Engage in research: Supporting you to undertake your own research, perhaps inspired by some of the things you have read on this website.

Engage with research

Browse our free research library

British Religion in Numbers (BRIN) database, managed by the British Academy for the Humanities and Social Sciences can be found at  http://www.brin.ac.uk/. We have created a resource for teachers explaining how this could be used in the classroom, along with a teaching idea based on some of the data. Access the resource here

In November 2021 the Journal of Religious Education published a special edition in partnership with AULRE. Researching RE: changing times for Religious Education. You can find links to the articles here

https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/tools/ These pages provided by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) offer guidance, project information and practical tools to help you think about improving teaching practice. They are not specific to Religion and Worldviews and the EEF have a particular approach to research.

https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/evidence-summaries/teaching-learning-toolkit/ Again this is offered by the EEF, and will help you to think about impact, evidence and costs of interventions.
