‘Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.’
Measure for measure, Act I Scene IV
ResearchED Research Leads Network Day, 13th December 2014
It is perhaps indicative of the character of the researchED movement that the ‘Research Leads Network Day’ keynote was a ‘reality check’ delivered by Professor Rob Coe – warning that we risk being little more than another education fad and reminding us that there was currently no robust evidence supporting the idea of research leads in schools.
That might have been the end of the whole event – we might have marched off, heads low, back to our schools in shame (which would have been a pity given the large turnout and the distance some people had come) – but fortunately having warned us against hubris, he offered some plausible suggestions for ways forward.
