researchED New York 2017

7th October 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

researchED New York

Welcome to researchED New York!

researchED began in 2013 as an attempt to raise research literacy in the teaching profession, and to try to get the best evidence into the classrooms that needed it most. It struck me, and lots of other educators, that many evidence bases we relied on in education weren’t as certain as they were sold, and that some of the best research failed to land properly. This wasn’t good enough, for children or educators. If we ever want to be able to call teaching a true profession we need to critically engage with evidence where it exists, and allow it to inform practice- and vice versa. I’ve been amazed by how successful our conferences have been, and it’s such an honour to come back to the US for the third year in a row. Listen, challenge and discuss anything that interests you or speaks to your needs.

researchED is a non-profit, run by volunteers and populated by speakers who give their time for free. Education is one of the most collaborative, altruistic sectors I can imagine, and we’re proud to be part of such a rewarding and supportive communities. Thank you for coming and  I hope you have a wonderful day.
