From research to practice at a residential special school: The Mulberry Bush  – Caryn Onions

The presentations were drawn from those people who had either submitted abstracts on the topic for this event – Research into practice – or from the BERA strand that was being presented as part of the Oxford Brookes School of Education Research Conference. Both of these events were cancelled due to the COVID-19 situation. However, this event offers presenters an audience for their work. We are pleased that there is so much activity with research contributing to practice.

The work relates to the activities from a range of SIGs. To accommodate time differences and the busy schedules of practitioners, we have made the presentations available over a three week period.
