Kirsten Colquhoun, Event Organiser, said: “Building on the success of our inaugural Aberdeen conference in 2022, we’re thrilled to bring it back again this year. We’re delighted to welcome speakers from all over the world to join us in facilitating a significant day of insightful discussions and valuable learning opportunities.”

Bringing the conference to Aberdeen for its second year, Robin Macpherson, Head of Robert Gordon’s College, added: “the researchED movement has really empowered teachers in using strategies that are supported by education research, rather than just being expected to follow the latest fad. It has provided a space for everyone involved in education to come together for the benefit of learners, and we’re delighted to have such a diverse range of speakers. As well as learning from the sessions, it’s also a great chance to meet new people working in different sectors. Our last conference was a huge success, and this one promises to be every bit as good.”
