Happy New Year!
Our network continues to build here at Blackpool Research School, and our training courses and events continue in earnest over the coming weeks.
 
Here is a summary of what’s happening this half term:
 
 
 
  • Thursday 25 January: the first in our free Evidence Fair series is today, from 4.15pm until 5.30pm. We are delighted to welcome Sir Kevan Collins to Blackpool Research School for a session on the theme of “Putting evidence to work to tackle disadvantage”. Tickets are now completely sold out for this event.
 
  • Wednesday 7 February: our on-going Journal Club meets today from 3.45pm until 4.30pm – as usual we look at a research paper and consider its implications for teaching and learning. This time we will look at “What will improve students’ memory?” By Daniel T Willingham. Contact simon.cox.blackpool@researchschool.org.uk if you would like to join us, and watch out for more information on our website.
 
Behind the scenes, we will be continuing our meetings of the EEF working party groups looking at evidence-based practice in mathematics and science: keep watching for news of events and training linked to this.
 
As always, we are available to support in any way we can the use of evidence-based practice in your school, and can arrange to visit you in your school if needed. Please contact us at simon.cox.blackpool@researchschool.org.uk
 
Looking further forward, our exclusive training based upon the new EEF maths guidance report (available here: https://educationendowmentfoundation.org.uk/tools/guidance-reports/maths-ks-two-three/) starts on February 26 – this is now sold out.
 
And don’t forget to buy your tickets for Blackpool’s first ever researchED conference on Saturday March 24 – we have a fantastic line up, including a keynote from Baroness Estelle Morris, and tickets are available here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/researched-at-blackpool-research-school-tickets-39649489691
