Dylan Wiliam - Research and Education



In this session, Dylan will be exploring the different types of research in education and looks at whether education can even be a research profession. Can teachers be able to make evidence-based decisions in the classroom every day? Dylan will be exploring what research means in education and what the limits are and asks, “what can teachers do as a result?”
