So, where are we heading with this lesson?

This lesson explores the starting points for acquiring evidence, using multiple credible sources of data to support any approach.

We’ll get you to reflect individually on the sources of organisational data that might be relevant to the questions you are seeking answers to for a current project, if you need help in accessing this data and if so, who can assist you? Remember that you can make notes in your interactive workbook.

We also encourage you to take part in the community forum which provides the collaborative space to share your thinking and ideas with others. In this lesson we’ll ask you to think about the value of scientific literature and research studies as a key source of insight. We encourage you to post a link to a scientific, research or evidence-based report that you have found insightful and comment on how this has supported your practice.

Review what others have posted to gain wider understanding on the theme from people professionals working in different contexts. Support the learning community by reading the contributions of others, 'liking' those you find helpful and add your unique reflections to the conversation.
