HOW can educational research make a bigger impact on
policy-making and classroom practice? Governors, researchers, teachers and parents who believe they may have some answers to this perennial question can attend two one-day events in
January being organised by the National Education Research Forum.
The first will be held in
London on January 10 and the second in Manchester on
January 15. Those wishing to attend shoul contact Mariam Nahaboo on 020 7841 2903 or e-mail her on Mariam.email@example.com. Some travel bursaries are available for teachers and parents.
A copy of the forum's recently published consultation document, "Research and Development in Education", can be downloaded from www.nerf-uk.org. The document is also available from NERF publications, PO Box 5050, Sherwood Park, Annesley, Nottingham, NG15 0DJ or call 0845 602 2260.
