Unlocking Research: Sculpting New Creativities in Primary Education

Second in the series of seminars, hosted by the Chartered College of Teaching, that will inspire and enable new thinking about the benefits and viability of developing research-informed and research-generating practices. Inspired by the innovative series of books ‘Unlocking Research’ (series editors Dr James Biddulph and Mrs Julia Flutter, Routledge) each seminar will focus on each book in the series, with teachers, teaching assistants and academics presenting ideas and ways in which research influenced practice and how practice influenced research.

Participants will hear from our panel of speakers:

Professor Pamela Burnard FCCT FRSA, Michelle Loughrey ‘Why creativities and why now’, Dr James Biddulph FCCT FRSA and Dr Steven Berryman FCCT.
