Friday 26 October, The Hive
Bookings are now being taken for the annual postgraduate education conference at Worcester, which this year has the broad theme of Education Reform. The annual postgraduate education conference is a small and supportive event which provides postgraduate researchers from institutions throughout the Midlands to share and discuss their developing research.
This year we are extremely privileged to welcome both academic and professional keynote speakers:
Professor Pam Sammons (University of Oxford)
Pam Sammons is an expert in mixed-methods education research. She has worked as a researcher on a number of high-profile research projects, and specialises in school and teacher effectiveness. Most recently, she worked on the BERA publication A Baseline without Basis, questioning the rationale behind the introduction of a Reception Baseline assessment. She was named Outstanding Graduate Supervisor by the Oxford University Student Union. Pam has a wealth of professional and academic expertise in education reform, and we are exceptionally pleased to welcome her to this event.
Ms Natasha Rancins (Headteacher, Woodrush High School)
Woodrush High School in Wythall was Ofsted Outstanding in 2010/11 and again in 2013/14. Ms Rancins was appointed as Head recently, but has long been committed to the school, having been appointed as a Newly Qualified Teacher at Woodrush in 2000. Woodrush High School is at the forefront of education reform, being designated as a National Teaching School and a participant in the Mandarin Excellence Programme. We are delighted to welcome Natasha to speak about her experiences of education reform from a professional perspective.
250 word abstracts on the broad theme of education reform are now being welcomed from postgraduate researchers in the field of education. The deadline for abstract submission is Friday, 14 September.
