This event will showcase fascinating research on the theme of Identity and Learning in Schools between teachers and Educational Researchers from the Centre of Social Justice and Wellbeing in Education in the Department of Educational Research at Lancaster University.

The aim is to develop a genuine exchange between practitioners and researchers. We want to tell you about some of our recent research and understand how you may be able to apply our findings. In turn we want to listen to the needs you may have for future research directions.
