#ResearchSEND Conference - 11th February 2017

The first #ResearchSEND conference took place last week at the University and was very successful. The conference celebrated all the great work that is undertaken on behalf of SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) pupils and the staff in schools supporting them.

Leaders of national debate on good practice in SEND & Inclusion such as Rob Webster, Nancy Gedge and Professor Philip Garner, presented alongside our panel guests of Educational Strategists, Dame Alison Peacock, Sir Toby Salt and Mick Walker, Professor Michelle Lowe and Kerry Jordan-Daus who contributed to the debate on teachers as researchers and its practical application back in the classroom.

We also had many exhibitors including; SEN Books, Frog Education, Chartered College of Teaching, EdCentral, NASEN & London Leadership and Ednex-The Education Career Network, who also sponsored the lunch and refreshments.
