To launch the new cross-BU educational research group, a workshop will be held in the new Centre for Excellence in Learning space (PG30a) on Thursday October 2nd, from 9.30 to 12.30.
The session will firstly offer an overview of educational research journals and conferences, funding opportunities and REF criteria (including the provisional BU strategy for entering the education UoA). Secondly, participants will have the opportunity to work together to share research, ideas and / or plans, with the aim of generating some collaborative approaches.
Please come along if you have educational research to share, are starting out in educational research, need advice on getting started or are just interested. There will be no obligation to join the research group.
In addition, I will be basing myself in the CEL space for people to ‘drop in’ and chat about educational research one Friday a month. The next one is on Friday October 31st (10 – 3).
Once the group is established, further meetings and workshops will be arranged through CEL.
For some context / detail, have a look at this provisional overview and strategy Education UoA position paper and / or contact me – firstname.lastname@example.org
