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, Haninge, Pretoria, Philadelphia, Rome, Dubai, Melbourne, Auckland, Amsterdam, New York, Toronto and Vancouver.

ResearchED returns to the beautiful campus at St. Columba’s College in September 2020, after a hugely successful first event in 2019.
