We currently offer 4 types of events:

Seminars: researchers discuss their research specifically for a teacher audience, offering rich insights together with practical ideas and strategies

Educator Q+As: for teachers, by teachers. Expert teachers share how they are applying particular research in their teaching practice and offer practical strategies and resources

Learning circles: provide teachers with the opportunity to delve deeper into the research, and to discuss particular research findings and reports with each other, and guided by an expert facilitator

Report launches: we aim to release two research reports each year. Each release will have an accompanying event, which will delve into the main themes and implications of the report.
