researchED is returning to York, once more hosted by Huntington School, on the 9th of July 2016.
Since the first researchED in York, back in 2014, a huge number of developments have seen research evidence reach teachers and school leaders at the chalkface. From research projects seeing evidence being applied by Research-leads in the RISE Project (Research Leads Improving Students’ Education), to HEIs supporting school teachers with research-informed answers in the Evidence for the Frontline project, to the excellent Super network, along with an array of Teaching Schools joining forces and forming alliances to develop research and development, there has been an emergence of great evidence-informed practice that we can share, debate and discuss. The focus of the event will very much be centred on the very raison d’être of ResearchEd: working out what works, whilst involving teachers at the heart of the process. This event will welcome many new teachers and voices, so we want to promote some of the excellent debate and discussion prompted by knowledgeable speakers.
We are delighted to announce that Baroness Estelle Morris will be giving the keynote speech on the day. We will have some cracking speakers from the edusphere, such as John Tomsett and Alex Quigley, alongside Research-leads, teachers and school leaders who are all busy trying to work out what works in schools.
The day will have a strong Research Leads strand to complement the previous Research Leads Network Days we organised last year, but will also feature the usual features of researchED events, with a wide choice of sessions to allow you to tailor the day to your needs.
A hot lunch is included in the price of the ticket.Speakers will be announced very soon.
researchED is a not-for-profit, grass roots, teacher/educator-led movement that has three principle aims:
- To raise the research literacy of the education profession
- To platform transformative research and challenge research of poor quality
- To bring different education communities together than often have too few opportunities to do so.
Our conference days have several features that make us distinct:
- We encourage everyone affected by education research to speak and contribute- researchers, academics, policy makers, teachers, and that blend makes for very special and powerful conversations, not merely privileged ones.
- We run events on Saturdays only, in order for all educators to be able to attend.
- We keep ticket costs to a bare minimum so that price presents no barrier to attendance.
- Sessions are around 45 minutes, including questions; this encourages impact, brevity and focus.
- Attendees go to one of several simultaneous sessions, picking them on the day. This makes it possible to build a day that suits the individual.
- We encourage debate, challenge and cross-examination. Panels and sessions reflect this.
- We do not offer speaker fees, as this enable us to meet our target of the lowest ticket prices possible. We rely on everyone’s generosity for the benefit of the profession.
