Mapping Education Specialist knowHow (MESH)

Mapping Education Specialist knowHow (MESH) is a ‘map of education’ which provides access to subject and concept specific research-based knowledge about barriers to students’ learning, including interventions most likely to remove barriers.

The MESH approach uses online graphical flowcharts or pathways to form maps, as a way of presenting complex knowledge, each node in the pathway providing a link to the display of more in-depth knowledge. The resources presented in these online pathways can be accessed in any web based format such as text, audio or video and are underpinned with rigorous high quality research evidence. This approach is based on a successful model used in the medical field and adopts the ideas of knowledge management to the managing and building of a professional knowledge base for the field of education.
