The Network Expands
Just as the Luton study formed the pilot for the development of the HGI PRN, after four years of leading by example in how to approach the gathering of robust practice based evidence, the HGI PRN has itself now widened its remit to encourage many others on the international arena to also set about gathering evidence of the effectiveness of their approach in similar ways.
The HGI PRN now sits within this expanded structure that is known as the Pragmatic Research Network. It is to be hoped that others can learn about the HG research journey and more about HG in this way and a spirit of collaboration will be fostered. More about the new developments can be found on the Pragmatic Research Network blog at www.pragmaticresearchnetwork.blogspot.com
If you have completed the HG Diploma and are interested in participating in the work of the network then please read about it on the blog and at www.hgiprn.org and contact Bill Andrews at firstname.lastname@example.org.

All children have an innate need to be stretched and connected up to more of reality. It is a psychological law of nature. Consequently we can say that, whenever teachers are having difficulties in schools, it invariably comes down to the fact that they are not working with, or being allowed to work with, that fundamental truth.
In this 2009 article, Bill Andrews describes the practice-based evidence that has emerged from studies of the human givens approach to date and explains why the future looks positive.
