researchED Rome

The first ever researchED conference to be held in Italy is taking place at St George's British International School, Rome, on Saturday 26 October 2019.

researchED is an organisation that seeks to bridge the gap between educational research and what happens in everyday teaching practice. Its aim is to raise the research literacy of educators so that they can critically assess the research out there and explore what might work for them in their educational context.
