Research at Glasgow

18th February 2005 at 00:00
We are writing to correct the implication that was given in your news report last week about Glasgow University's faculty of education that Professor Baron's views were those of the Applied Educational Research Scheme (AERS).

As was made clear to the journalist, he was speaking in a personal capacity as a recent member of the Glasgow faculty. At no stage were AERS and his post as co-ordinator topics of the interview (except to agree a future meeting to discuss it).

The statement that Glasgow is excluded from AERS and is isolated from collaborative opportunities is simply untrue. While the university is not a member of the co-ordinating consortium, staff from it are active members of the AERS networks and its various committees, as are staff from other universities with education faculties.

We unreservedly welcome this involvement in the strengthening of the base for Scottish educational research, and would like to stress the open and inclusive nature of AERS.

Professor Pamela Munn Head of Moray House School of Education, Edinburgh University, and Chair of AERS management committee Stephen Baron Strathclyde University
