ResearchED in Wash. DC on October 29

I participated in the ResearchED conference in June at Oxford. ResearchED is a great UK-based, grass-roots organization consisting mostly of teachers. The goal of the organization is to bring more scientifically based research on educational practices into the education arena. Currently such arena is dominated by questionable studies that reference everyone else’s questionable studies and which are used to bolster and proliferate so-called “evidence” for bad and destructive teaching practices.
