UCET Annual Conference

4 November, Hilton Birmingham Metropole

NFER Senior Research Manager Matt Walker will be presenting at the UCET Annual Conference on ‘The importance of enhancing teachers’ research literacy: what teacher educators need to know about research in schools, and how you can help prepare your trainees.’

This session will outline the push and pull factors behind the growing interest and desire amongst teachers, policy-makers and others for teaching practice to be better aligned to research findings. It will explore the challenges facing teachers in engaging with research and provide practical guidance and links to resources that will help you teach trainees the core skills of how to access, interpret, engage in and use research to inform classroom practice.
