Nottingham Institute of Education set up this this blog page in September 2018, after requests from our partner providers. Those we work with in education were interested in the opinions of academics: people who spend their lives working in, studying, and researching education. For our part we often see great practice and read stimulating articles in the course of our research, but don’t always have simple ways to share this. So the blog offers a way to provide simple and succinct summaries of our work. We hope you enjoy reading it, and perhaps contribute too, either through comments or as a guest blogger.
