What is ResearchED?

ResearchED is an international phenomenon. The goal of researchED is to bridge the gap between research and practice in education. Researchers, teachers and policy-makers come together for a day of information-sharing and myth-busting.

Started by Tom Bennett in London 2013, it has spread around the world, to venues beyond the UK like Malmo, Pretoria, Philadelphia, Dubai, Melbourne, Auckland, Amsterdam, New York, Toronto and Vancouver.

Now it is coming to Ireland for the first time, on the beautiful campus of St. Columba’s College, Dublin 16.

Read the programme for the day here. Below see a short video with highlights of the first researchED event in Ireland.
