Research Lead network - Christmas conference
13 December 2014
Kings College London, Waterloo Campus, SE1
After the success of the researchED 2014 'Lunchtime of Champions' event, researchED is proud to announce the first Research Lead network (RLD) one-day conference.
Our first event specially designed for school research leads, or anyone in education interested in finding out more about the role, how to perform it more effectively, and where they can go for more information and support.
On September 6th, 2014, a network lunch was held for research leads (the 'Lunchtime of champions' as I tirelessly attempted to christen it, to little avail). It proved wildly popular, and showed that there was a taste for more. The Research Lead network is a researchED project attempting to bring together anyone in schools and beyond who act as conduits between the research communities and the school communities. This role, for most schools, is so new that frequently, research leads are unsure what to do next. This conference is part of the process to answer that.
Come along and meet experts in the research fields, hear first hand case studies of how they have successfully integrated research into their school environments, meet people in your position, and find out ways to make research a powerful ally in your school.
