Seminar adroddiadau Rhwydwaith Tystiolaeth Gydweithredol (CEN)
Collaborative Evidence Network (CEN) reports seminars

From January 2023, we have been holding a series of online seminars to showcase and disseminate the main findings from the Collaborative Evidence Network (CEN) reports. The eighteen collaborative research projects, involving HEIs and other organisations, looked at impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on various aspects of the education system and on particular groups of learners. They also looked at ways to mitigate those impacts, as well as ways practitioners and learners can be better supported going forwards.


This forth seminar focuses on different approaches to learning in the classroom. This includes an examination of the role for pupil voice and how this could be expanded, the role of outdoor learning and the role of grouping practice for children with additional learning needs.
