Demonstrating the impact of your product or service using evidence. 'In association with Educate Ventures Research'.


The webinar will focus on the importance of research based evidence as a way of demonstrating the efficacy of your product. How companies need a rigorous process that produces evidence that holds up to scrutiny and how teachers are increasingly demanding to see proper research and studies that demonstrate the positive impact your product will have.

Educate Ventures Research (EVR) Director Professor Rose Luckin will talk you through the components of a high quality evidence programme and the steps you will need to take to ensure your evidence complies. Rose will present examples of what good evidence looks like using case studies drawn from within BESA membership and from companies that have been through the EDUCATE research programme.

Rose will also introduce the new BESA/EDUCATE Evidence and Impact programme which has been devised specifically for BESA members.

What is the BESA/EDUCATE Evidence and Impact programme?

The BESA/EDUCATE Evidence and Impact programme has been designed to help any company, no matter their size, to effectively evidence their impact for customers, regulators, and themselves. The course builds on BESA and EVR's long running partnership on the successful EU funded EDUCATE EdTech evidence research support service.
