This IPDA/TEAN event took place at the University of Cumbria, London campus, on 10 June 2014. Schools in England are taking an increasing role in the training of teachers, both of beginning and experienced staff. Research and development opportunities for teachers, where the ultimate goal should be to empower professionals with evidence, are significant and this event sought to address the following questions: How can research capacity be built in schools? How can research practice be embedded as part of general practice? How does it benefit learning in school? In what ways can strong partnerships between schools and HEI promote and enhance opportunities for school-led research?
TEAN would like particularly like to thank the following members of IPDA: Helen Mitchell (University of East London) from IPDA for her invaluable help in planning this event; Dr Bob Burstow (Kings College, London) for his help both before and on the day and Dr Liz White (University of Hertfordshire) for her help on the day.
