Welcome to CTLR

MAKING CONNECTIONS

The Centre for Teaching and Learning Research (CTLR) is engaged with education in all its pedagogical and social complexity. The interests of members span local, national and international contexts and a range of formal and informal settings, running from Early Years to Higher Education and including Initial Teacher Education. 

The Centre's strapline is  Making Connections, reflecting its focus on bringing research, theory, policy and practice together with a view to promoting positive change. Consistent with this, we aim to foster the development of more holistic, contextualised  and systemic understandings of education in all its many forms.

RESEARCH HUB - CONFERENCES

Date: Tuesday 11 December, 2018
Time: 12-1.30pm
Venue: Ground Floor Meeting Room (behind reception), Essex House

CTLR Research Hub is open to all and we would really welcome ESW doctoral researchers to join us. We will use this meeting to explore questions/share experiences of conferences, covering such things as:

  • The value of attending conferences
  • How to find a suitable conference + when and how to apply
  • Conferences we have been to and feel able to recommend
  • The different kinds of presentation format - and what might work best for you
  • What to include in a conference abstract - and how to respond to any feedback
  • What’s expected in terms of presenting

We hope that the Research Hub will leave you feeling supported and informed and that you will wish to come back and share your questions and experiences again.

A light lunch will be provided so please register by emailing Louise Gazeley by 4 December.

Professor Brian HudsonCTLR News

Recently retired Emeritus Professor of Education and CTLR member, Brian Hudson, has just had an article published in the London Review of Education as part of special feature 'Knowledge and subject-specialist teaching'. The article addresses the question of what it is that students are entitled to learn in school mathematics and draws on outcomes from a recent study arising from the Developing Mathematical Thinking in the Primary Classroom (DMTPC) project. The article considers the role of teachers as curriculum-makers at classroom level where curriculum and pedagogy effectively merge.
