Prepared the session on Successive Relearning. Early train. Met old friends, made digital acquaintances 3d. Met, enjoyed a coffee with, and laughed with a self-pronounced Research Legend Paul Kirchner and Kelly Furlough. Made new connections. Met the gentlemen from #morethanajob podcast. Learnt quite a bit. How could you not? It was am embarrassment of riches. Six sessions with twenty titles in each from the good and great. With “STILL” caught between Phil Stock and Amanda Spielman in the progamme – made my day.

Research ED 2021 National Conference – Working out what works (Chobam Academy)
What is researchED?
ResearchED is an organisation that aims to bridge the gap between research and practice in education. The National Conference is an opportunity for researchers, teachers, and policy makers to “come together for a day of information-sharing and myth-busting.”
A veritable smorgasbord of talented educationalists share their professional work and insights during the day through six or seven session rounds, each session 40 minutes long.
Attendees, like me / our staff / build their own day of professional learning, attending the sessions that perk their interest.
ADD your / STAFF sessions here.
We even had our own STAFF presenting at this prestigious event…
Best of all, that knowledge and insight is then brought back for the benefit of all at our school.
