This virtual event focuses on understanding and capturing the innovative school practices that are informing local education recovery. University researchers, working with school leaders and teachers, will share their stories via a carousel of short presentations, filmed vignettes or workshop-style activities. The event will then conclude with a facilitated discussion as to how universities might continue to contribute to strengthening Greater Manchester’s local education agenda, by exploring what schools and their partners want from a world-leading, research-intensive Education department. It aims to raise awareness, open up dialogue and build further practitioner- researcher partnerships.
We intend that this event will bring together school leaders and teachers, student teachers, teacher educators, local policymakers and university researchers across the city-region in a knowledge and practice exchange. Researchers who have been working in partnership with local schools will share examples of innovative practice towards education recovery. This will include research and practice to support children’s mental health, accelerate their progress in school, mitigate the pandemic’s impacts on children’s home circumstances, and support sustainable communities. In doing so, we will also seek to open up a dialogue between local school partners and education-related professionals to explore what role university researchers might play within this local educational landscape and agenda.
