The St Mary's University, Twickenham Institute of Education has announced the line-up of talks to be given as part of their upcoming 2020/21 research seminar series.
The series brings together academics and postgraduate students to share their latest research and ideas.
A wide variety of topics is included from wellbeing of early career teachers, Catholics and conspiracies, and global educational issues. The seminars last no more than one hour with a presentation and times for questions and discussion.
Prof Anna Lise Gordon, Director of the Institute of Education, said "it is uplifting and inspiring to hear research stories on a whole range of education-related issues. There is such a breadth of talent across the Institute of Education at St Mary's University, and these seminars are very popular among busy colleagues and students - short, purposeful, and thought-provoking. A real research showcase!"
