Description

Researchmeet Bedford College

2019 KEYNOTE: Diane Dalby : Nottingham University. Maths education and maths teachers in further education. Diane will take us through her project, research design, and findings.

SPECIAL GUEST: David Corke the Director of Education and Skills from the Association of Colleges will be leading a workshop exploring how practitioner research could be used in colleges and to inform sector policy.


Researchmeets are days FOR FE lecturers BY FE lecturers.

This year’s event has two aims. Firstly, to share and encourage research within the sector. Therefore, all research presentations on the day, with the exception from the keynotes, will be from practitioners working in an FE or work based learning environment (WBE). When we say research, we are looking widely at everything from enquiry in your learning environment and action research through to post-graduate and doctoral research. The key is to reflect the breadth and thoughtfulness that exisits in the sector. So everyone working in FE is welcome to run a workshop in our ‘research’ strand.

Our second aim is to support people along their research journey. This is new to the format this year. Here we are looking for those within the sector, or who have worked in the sector, to present on areas that can help others develop. So, we are looking for action researchers to explain their experiences to other and recent master's students to share their experiences and encourage others. Where every other sector body stops there, we don’t! We want doctors or doctoral students to bring on the next generation passing on advice for first time publishers and conference attenders. So please, if you can provide support, advice and encouragement to others, please consider running a workshop in our ‘development’ strand.

The workshops will be run over the period of approximately 45 minutes. The aim of the sessions is to share and develop research in FE and to encourage and facilitate others. The workshops are designed to be a space for researchers in FE to collaborate, develop identities and voices. As workshop leader, your role is share your research and to facilitate the experience of the delegates.

If you are interested in presenting, please contact Sam Jones (sjones@bedford.ac.uk)
