Back in May 2014, the first northern ResearchEd event was held in York, at Huntington School. In the interim, ResearchEd has hopped across the pond to New York (still not as good as the proper northern original of course), it has dipped toes in antipodean waters, and is due in Amsterdam and Scandanavia in the coming months.
Happily, ResearchEd is returning to the north of Yorkshire, to old York, once more hosted by Huntington School, on the 9th of July 2016.
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 Tom Bennett and John Tomsett, alongside Research-leads, teachers and school leaders who are all busy trying to work out what works in schools.
Bringing the excitement, energy and summer sunshine (we have booked some July heat especially for the occasion – DISCLAIMER – this is not factually true – and lots of bottled water – this is true) of ResearchEd back to York, uniting the best of what Yorkshire has to offer, with colleagues and speakers from around the country, will surely make for another great day.
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 imminent release of speaker information and tickets for the hottest research-informed event this summer will come to you early next year…stay tuned!
