researchED Toronto

November 10, 2017 @ 7:00 pm – November 11, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

researchED is coming to Canada with the first ever researchED conference and it’s in the downtown heart of Toronto, Canada’s largest city.  Working with researchED UK, our Canadian organizing committee has assembled some of the brightest thinkers and teacher-researchers from the UK and right across Canada. Come and learn what the latest research tells us about the best ways to teach, lead schools, and help children learn.  Listen, learn and speak to the researchers, teachers and academics transforming the best research into teaching practice.  Network, get ideas, be challenged and ask questions at one of the most unique, stimulating and engaging events of the year.

We believe that the teaching profession is poised and ripe for change; a change where teachers and schools are guided by the best evidence available, working in tandem with experience, craft and wisdom. Where we no longer work alone, or under ancient misconceptions, but together in an informed community of school practitioners. Come and join us as we bring researchED to a new audience in Canada.

We hope to see you there.
