I am starting an EdD whilst working full time as a Head of History at an 11-16 school in the East Midlands. I caught the research bug during my MA. I had hoped that completing the Masters course would satisfy my interest in how teachers can engage with research, it only led to more questions!
This blog is my attempt to find sense in my assignments as I go along, summarise interesting research and consider ways that what I am reading can impact classroom practice. My thesis will explore the way in which teachers can engage with research, so it makes sense that I consider ways in which my research impacts my own practice.
I am hoping to write pieces that support fellow EdD students, share ideas with teachers and bridge the gap between research in universities and practice in the classroom.
