Teacher Research Conference: June 2012
The inaugural Teacher Research Conference, hosted by the MA in Education Studies in association with the CIRCLETS research centre, took place in June 2012 at the University of Sussex. Attended by 55 delegates, the conference enabled educationalists and teachers from the Sussex Consortium of Teacher Education and Research to explore research conducted in local schools and share implications for practice.
The keynote speech was given by Dr Hazel Bryan, Senior Lecturer and Head of Professional Development at Canterbury Christ Church University, who talked about "The Teacher as Enquirer: Developing agency and voice through research". Presenters included teacher researchers from the MA in Education Studies, faculty from the Department of Education and also research partners of the Department's and its partner universities and schools.
Evaluations of the conference rated it very highly, with particular commendations given to the quality of the presentations, the level of debate and the opportunities for linking research to practice.
The next Teacher Research Conference will take place on Saturday 29th June 2013. Please contact David Morris to reserve a place:
