Ensuring research informs teaching and learning - new post on BOLD blog

My latest post for the Blog on Learning and Development (BOLD) discusses a recent review into randomised control trials in education. This review found that most trials in education are uninformative. I explore the reasons for this, and consider how the research community might move forward. You can read the post here.

New job!

I'm very excited to have started a new job at the British Psychological Society as Deputy Editor of The Psychologist magazine! Throughout my PhD I was spending increasing amounts of time on science writing and public engagement, so I'm really pleased to be able to focus on this in my new role.

Sadly this means I will be leaving some of my educational neuroscience work behind. I am stepping down from my role as a coordinator for EARLI SIG 22, a position which helped me to get involved with the international educational neuroscience community. A highlight of my time with the SIG was co-organising the 2018 conference with Lia Commissar from the Wellcome Trust.

But, I do still have papers in the pipeline based on my PhD and postdoc research, and I will continue blogging about educational neuroscience whenever I can!
