Dartmoor TSA and its Teaching Schools South West partners (ECTSA and SWTSA) are delighted to announce our first Summer Conference: Reshaping Education through Research. This will be held on 13 June 2019, 9.30-3.00 at Exeter Racecourse. Please find below the Conference Flyer with Booking Link.
The aim of the conference is to examine the key role of research in education today and explore how school leaders can use the wealth of evidence now available to help reshape our schools for the decade ahead.
We have three high profile national speakers as keynotes:
Professor Daniel Muijs – Head of Research at Ofsted | Daniel’s focus on research is at the heart of the new Education Inspection Framework. Prior to his current role, Daniel was Professor of Education at the University of Southampton
Tom Bennett – Director of researchED| Tom Bennett founded researchED, a grass-roots organisation that raises research literacy in education. Since 2013 researchED has visited three continents. In 2015 he became the UK government’s school ‘Behaviour Czar’
Professor Becky Allen - Chaired the DfE's Teacher Workload Advisory Group. She is Chief Analyst and a co-founder of Teacher Tapp. Until 2018 she was Professor of Education at UCL Institution of Education. Her book on teacher careers called ‘The Teacher Gap’ was published last year.
There will be a wide range of workshops available – please see flyer – with new national and regional presenters being added in the coming weeks.
The conference is aimed at school leaders. We have secured sponsorship which enables us to price tickets at £50 for DTSA, ECTSA and SWTSA members.
We will be providing further information on keynote and workshop titles in the next month. It would be great to have as many Dartmoor TSA members represented at what we hope will be a super event.
