6th Annual Teacher Researcher Conference

The 6th Annual Teacher Researcher Conference took place on 17 June 2017. Designed to enable the sharing of practitioner research to enhance children’s educational experience, develop pedagogy and embed a rich research culture in schools, promoting evidence-based practice, the event was attended by a record number of delegates: 80 teachers, senior leaders and education researchers from 45 schools, covering the full spectrum of secondary, primary and early years settings. Not bad for one of the hottest Saturday mornings of the year!
