researchED Kent

1st December 2018 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Highworth school in Ashford invites you to researchED Kent, a conference designed for all those interested in research-informed practice.

researchED is on a mission to raise research literacy amongst teachers, bring people together, promote collaboration, increase awareness, promote research and explore what works.

On Saturday 1st December, we have an impressive line-up of speakers who will be sharing their knowledge and expertise about how research has scope to support our work in the classroom and across your school.

There will be workshop strands in the following areas (though you’re welcome to pick and choose between any of the 20+ available).

Curriculum; Research in theory; Research in practice; Leadership

Plus subject specific input on the following: English; Maths; Science; MFL; Geography; History

New to researchED Kent, we’ve added a strand of workshops where speakers and delegates can work together developing research-informed ideas and resources to take back to the classroom on Monday. These optional workshops will be an opportunity to bridge the gap between research and practice by working exactly out what this might look like in your classroom.
