Assessing Trainee teachers in Behaviour Management across the Standards

What do Children remember About Teachers? Plenary

Teaching Teachers: The Management of Classroom Behaviour and Learning

An Integrated Approach to the Management of Severely Disturbed Children

Moving Toward developing behaviours that facilitate the process of Learning, Travelers Conference, Cambridge Institute of Education
This presentation looked at the way in which inconsistent attendance in schools and classrooms which have varied expectations need clarifying for traveller children.

Action Research and Burnout
This presentation concentrates on the way in which action research is often tried but not often repeated through a teacher’s career as on-going professional development. This paper considers research experience in the light of action research as an open-ended activity for meaningful, long-term change rather than research as a means to an end. Research highlights potential difficulties when researching over a long period and how to maintain momentum and motivation in the context of periods of change generated by the research.

Complex Children - Complex Training for Teachers
This paper looked at the training of teachers in the management of complex behaviours in the classroom, from initial teacher training to on-going in-service training needs for serving teachers.

Action Research as a collaborative tool as embedded within the methodology and as part of a process as well as being a significant part of personal practice as a researcher.

Supporting Practitioner Research: a Challenge, University of Cambridge
This presentation looked at the way in which teachers can be encouraged to be critical of their practice and to be able to plan development through action research.

Active Involvement
This paper was based on research into positive interaction with children. This stems from observations that teaching practice can be made effective when adults are active in their search for how children learn and change.
