8th February 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9th February 2019 @ 5:00 pm








Come and join us for a unique two-day event celebrating better evidence in education

Reaching the West Coast AT LAST! researchED is thrilled to partner with Mulgrave School to bring you a fascinating array of voices, thought leaders and educational thinkers. Our goal is to raise the quality of evidence used in education, and crucially, in the classrooms where students need it most. Join us for a day of thinking, sharing, listening and contributing where teachers, academics, researchers and educationalists of all stripes come together in collaboration.

Build your own day by choosing the speakers you see, and enjoy lunch and refreshments included in the ticket as you network and share ideas, and leave as part of the researchED community, a truly 21st century movement that values reason and evidence in a world that needs it more than ever.


Come join us for an evening of networking at a reception hosted at Mulgrave School. For a virtual tour of the school, click here.
