Using evidence to inform policy and practice in teacher education and medical education

Online registration has now closed. If you want to attend this event, please email events@bera.ac.uk for details of how to register onsite

The two linked seminars form part of the BERA Research Commission to explore questions of quality and effectiveness in the provision of professional development in medical and teacher education. The aim of the Research Commission is to encourage the sharing of ideas between two communities, teacher educators and medical educators, who face similar pressures as questions of cost, value and quality are raised by policy makers. The Commission explores (through the experiences of the seminar participants, the supporting working papers and more widely through interaction in cross-professional community of inquiry) how economic literacy might furnish a more informed and robust response to these pressures.

Funded places available for PhD students/early career researchers. Contact Monica Ronchi (M.A.Ronchi@exeter.ac.uk) for more information.
