On Saturday 11th September, a number of WHF staff members went down to London and attended the latest Research ED conference hosted by Harris Academy. The conference gave staff the opportunity to listen to, and be part of the discussion, with a number of leading experts from across the country. Tom Bennett kick started the event by outlining the importance of engaging with research and encouraged all that attend to challenge what they heard. On the line of workshops was the WHF’s very own Director of Professional Development Dr Jim Rogers. Jim spoke to a number of delegates about how he developed evidence-informed professional development through his work with the Plymouth Oracy project.
