Practical Research for Education was a journal originally published twice a year and included the following regular features: Profile interviews with well-known researchers and theorists, Tool-kit articles that equip people to do their own research and Letter from the chalk-face, which offered readers the opportunity to write about their own experiences of doing or using research.
Issue 41's profile interview is with Judy Sebba and the tool-kit article offers advice on using audience response systems in your research. Other articles include telling stories to improve children's vocabulary learning and the use of peer support to improve students' motivation
