SEN Collaborative Research Network

14/11/2007

This is local news for local people!  The second annual Nottingham Research Network conference has been scheduled for Tuesday 8th January, 2008 from 9am-4pm at the School of Education (Dearing Building) on Jubilee Campus, Nottingham University.  I found last years conference really useful.  It is a great place to meet people working in every area of Special Educational Needs in the City of Nottingham and to get a better understanding of what’s actually happening in the different fields associated with SEN. In the words of the organisers: The main purpose of the Nottingham Research Network is to enhance the well being of people with additional support needs and the skills and confidence of their carers and other professionals through:

  • Promoting collaborative research in this area
  • Connecting people with shared research interests in children, young people and adults with additional support needs
  • Optimising the use of existing resources
  • Attracting resources and enhancing networks and collaboration
  • Identifying areas for development and sharing insights in order to assess the impact and effectiveness of activities
  • Ensuring greater harmony and mutual benefit between research agendas and local needs/priorities
  • Changing practice through theory and theory through practice
