Deputy Head Veronica Waldie recently attended a conference jointly hosted by the National Teacher Enquiry Network and researchEd at Huntington School in York. Here are her reflections on the day.
Why I went
I went to the ResearchED Conference hoping to be inspired, hoping to learn.
In school we are beginning conversations around “big issues “ such as how we can define, assure and improve the quality of teaching and learning.
I went to this conference to both deepen and clarify my own thoughts and to find ideas and practices which we could develop in school.
What I learnt

Part of this was because so much resonated with where we are as a school – with fires lit; a resurgence of interest in teaching and learning and the beginnings of curiosity about how research could help us to improve further.
