Leeds on a learning curve

Academics have given Leeds full marks for an upcoming event.

The British Education Research Association (BERA) conference will take place in the city in September 2016.

BERA is a member-led charity that champions the best of educational research.

The conference will take place over three days and attract around 1,000 national and international delegates representing a wide range of academics, policy makers and practitioners.

Previous conferences have been held in Brighton, London and Belfast.

Marie Blythe, events manager for BERA, said: “We last held the conference at the University of Leeds in 2001. Leeds as a city is a perfect location for the BERA conference due to its strong educational links and vibrant cultural atmosphere. With the evolution of the BERA programme over the last 15 years, it is long overdue to hold our conference in Leeds once again and enjoy a city that works together to deliver an outstanding delegate experiencee. Delegates to the conference have a wide range of educational and research interests. New learning technologies, pedagogies for the future, professional learning, and issues of equity and policy implementation are but a few focal topics. The BERA conference offers opportunities for networking, so a variety of venues is a must.”
