This is an opportunity for teachers across the department’s partner schools to share the outcomes of the small-scale action research projects and teacher enquiries that they have been engaged in over the course of the academic year 2017-18.

Some have been working directly with a University-based academic supporting their investigation, while others have been working in the context of school-based CPD programmes with support and advice from the Deanery.

The evening will run ‘Teach-Meet’ style with lots of short presentations and plenty of opportunities to ask questions and exchange ideas. The event is open to any interested teacher – keen to learn from teachers’ own research.

No booking is required, but if you would like to present a small-scale inquiry of your own at the event, please contact: katharine.burn@education.ox.ac.uk.

Katharine is Director of the department’s Education Deanery – a resource, which facilitates the continuing professional development of teachers at all career stages in local schools through supporting their engagement in and with research.
