A quick post to share links and blog posts from others that capture another incredibly rich, rewarding and thought provoking day thanks to the researchED team of Tom Bennett, Helene Galdin-O’Shea, Corpus Christi College and all the presenters and participants.
A cold but sunny day started off well with breakfast at Aromi (highly recommended – but get there early!)
A group of us from SUPER (or as Tom is now calling us ‘power rangers’!) presented in a session featuring the work of two of our ‘research leads’ or ‘teacher research co-ordinators’ (TRCs) as we call them in the network i.e. Clare Hood (Samuel Whitbread Academy) and Abi Thurgood-Buss (Rodings School and Dunmow Consortium).
Jan and myself (Bethan) supported from the Faculty with extra audience support from Laura, Lucy, Ben, Jacq and Lisa.
One of the best aspects of researchEd is the opportunity to network with friends old and new and get to meet social media/twitter friends IRL (‘in real life’)! It was good to finally meet Vincent Lien @fratribus and to hear him eloquently and convincingly make the case that teachers should have access to research journals.
He’s set up a petition which can be signed here:
Great blogposts reflecting on the day have already been posted by @drgaryjones
and Nick Rose AKA @turnfordblog:
. . . providing much food for thought which we look forward to sharing and discussing with all our TRCs back in the network and via this blog. There will be more blogs by other presenters/participants and we’ll post and re-tweet links as they appear.
Another brilliant researchEd event which we were very glad to be part of!
