researchED Scandinavia 2018

22nd September 2018 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Welcome to researchED Scandinavia! It’s a delight and an honour to be able to return here for our third year. The appetite from within the teaching profession and the education sector to review its practices in line with current research shows no signs of slowing down. It is an exciting time to be working in education- but then, when is it not? Teachers have for too long laboured under policies and practices that are evidence-light, or heavily ideological. It is long overdue that we continue to re-examine what we do and how we do it, free from commercial or political pressure. Children deserve better. Teachers deserve better. In a world where truth matters more than ever, it falls to us to teach children using the best techniques we know. researchED is proud to be part of that, and we are thrilled to be part of the conversation here in Malmo. Have a great day, and I hope to say hello!

Best wishes,

Tom Bennett
