A worrying trajectory? The Core Content Framework and the new science of educational research

Tuesday 23 May, 2023 – Tuesday 23 May, 2023
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Newton Park, Newton G08

Part of the School of Education Research Seminar Series 2022-23.

About the seminar

The teacher education system in England has seen a series of changes in the last ten years that have sought to challenge the role of HEIs and prioritise school-based experience. In this seminar Dr Hordern unpacks the assumptions underpinning England’s new Core Content Framework (CCF) in respect of the educational research required for teacher expertise. He will draw on his recent co-authored paper: ‘The core content framework and the ‘new science’ of educational research’.
