Abstract

In this paper we propose the use of translational research, more often associated with medicine, but here to refer to evidence-based resources for educational practitioners enabling knowledge mobilisation. Smith and Helfenbein identified that translational research ‘creates a space for collaborative, co-constructed inquiry that values and utilizes the expertise of all stakeholders involved’. We present the development of a founding model, MESH (Mapping Education Specialist knowHow, www.meshguides.org), for translational research and knowledge mobilisation in schools to support improved student attainment. MESH provides the ‘space’ for co-created, peer reviewed, evidence-based educational resources.
