Abstract

Evidence-informed approaches are widely acknowledged to be key to educational improvement, but finding time to use research in highquality ways can get lost in educators' busy schedules. Australian educators are working on average 140 to 150% of their paid hours (Education Ministers Meeting, 2021) and these heavy workloads are having negative impacts on educators' health and wellbeing (Heffernan et al., 2019). Time must be allocated to specific activities and purposes, and how leaders do this sends clear signals about what is valued within a school community. Given that educators see research use as important (Rickinson, Gleeson, Walsh, Cutler, et al., 2021), how can we better invest time in quality research use?
