R&D Sharing Event - Wed 4th March 2015
at The Billericay School, 4 - 6:30pm
Your local Teaching School Alliances in Southend, Essex and Thurrock have come together to host an event designed to highlight the impact that Research and Development (R&D) has on raising standards within school. This is a fabulous opportunity for you to see what schools in your area are doing, and speak to those teachers that are engaging in R&D and see the difference it can make. Please see the attached flyer for further details.
If you have engaged in R&D, and would be willing to share your project experience with others, please let us know. We’d love you to come along, produce a poster/other form of media to showcase your project, and be willing to discuss informally with likeminded colleagues in a comfortable small group surrounding. An exemplar poster is attached, as well as a Sharing Template for completion should you wish to share your project. Please don’t hesitate to call.
Booking is essential: For further information or to book a place please email email@example.com.
