Event Details

researchED 2013 is a national conference for teachers, researchers, and anyone interested in evidence-based education. How can evidence best be used to inform the way we teach? What does and doesn’t work? What do we mean by good evidence, and how do we recognise it? What type of research is meaningful, and what are the boundaries – if any – to the enquiry?

The theme of the conference is simple: working out what works. How we discover this, and how to answer the questions above, might be less so. For too long, teachers in schools and those working in research have been strangers to each other, or have often been at odds with one another. Many teachers complain of the tension between what they are told works, and what appears to work in the classroom. The appetite for educational research has often been blunted by the experience of fashionable research of questionable provenance.

This conference seeks to bring teacher and researcher together. To draw out the best of the practitioner’s experience and the analyst’s theory, and produce something better: evidence based education that actually fits the classroom, rather than attempts to make the classroom fit it.


On September 7th 2013, a collection of some of the UK (and beyond)’s best researchers, writers, teachers, school leaders and academics will come together and talk about where we are now, and where we go next. There will be keynote presentations from world experts, challenging debate panels, practical sessions, and most importantly, collaboration between the often non-overlapping magisteria of school and laboratory.

Ben Goldacre, author, doctor, and scourge of Bad Science

Sam Freedman, Director of Research, Teach First

Mary Whitehouse, Project Director of York Science

Daniel T Willingham, Univerity of Virginia

Chris Husbands, Director of the Institute of Education
