Research Schools to gather for national meeting

2 February 2018

Representatives from the 23 Research Schools, including the newly-appointed Ipswich Research School, will come together next week at a national Research Schools meeting.

The meeting, which takes place on Wednesday 7 February at Shireland Collegiate Academy (home of Shireland Research School), sees Research Schools gather together to reflect on the first term of this academic year and celebrate achievements so far.

Research Schools work with the other schools in their network to support them to make better use of evidence to inform their teaching and learning, and the day provides an opportunity for them to discuss this work. This will be done through workshops and sessions based around how to understand the research evidence and the Research Schools role in implementing it, building relationships and networks with schools and planning for the future.

Research Schools will also hear from keynote speakers Sir Kevan Collins, chief executive of the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), Professor Jonathan Sharples, senior researcher at the EEF and Dr Kathryn Asbury from the University of York, who will speak about implications of recent genetics research for education. Caroline Creaby, Director of Sandringham Research School, will talk about Evidence for the Frontline – a service to help teachers to use research evidence to support their practice in the classroom.
