SUPER at the inaugural researchED ‘Research Leads’ Conference, 13/12/14

A team of six of us (Ros, Bethan, Jan, Clare, Ruth & Jacq) had a very interesting and productive day out at the inaugural researchEd event for teachers leading research in schools hosted at King’s College, London last Saturday 13th December.

You can see a ‘storify’ of tweets relating to SUPER from the event on Saturday – which we hope will convey some of the activities and responses on the day:

The official programme for the day is can be accessed here. Prof Becky Francis welcomed participants as host on the behalf of King’s College.

We presented for 30 minutes as a team on aspects of our work – with a focus on our research ‘leads’ or as we call them ‘teacher research co-ordinators’ – and then we helped to facilitate small group discussions before a plenary. Our slides can be accessed here: researchED SUPER Dec 2014 Presentation slides (on the day many of our slides were animated). We planned all of this by collaborating virtually on a google doc and google slides – then we assembled the final ppt with everyone’s contributions.

Tom Bennett has blogged about the event in the TES here:

The event has definitely drawn a lot of attention to us and what we do. There was lots of interest in SUPER and our schools’ research ‘leads’ and research.  Our page ‘access to research’ is proving particularly popular:
