RESEARCH CAPACITY BUILDING NETWORK (RCBN) 2004 ANNUAL CONFERENCE
2004 Conference Title: Research Capacity Building in Teaching and Learning
presentations from this conference are now available for download:
The development of teaching and learning requires the most effective possible research base. Creating innovative strategies for building on the existing strengths of educational research in the UK is thus a key element in current attempts to strengthen policy and professional practice for teaching and learning.
This conference will explore some of the key issues which arise in the development of research capacity in this field. It will do so through the exploration of the experiences of the Economic and Social Research Council’s Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP); and it is intended primarily for the researchers who are involved in the TLRP.

It will do so through the exploration of the experiences of the Economic and Social Research Council’s Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) and it is intended primarily for researchers involved with the TLRP. It is hoped that at least one principal investigator and one contracted researcher from each TLRP project can attend the conference.
The 2004 RCBN Annual Conference has been organised alongside a conference by DYSG, the National operation in Wales of the Learning and Skills Development Agency (LSDA). Both events will be followed by a Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) Showcase of its whole project portfolio.
will begin with a presentation by the RCBN on the results of its consultation
exercise and an outline of how it is beginning to define ‘research
capacity’ and ‘research capacity-building’. A number
of TLRP projects will then be invited to present and discuss their experiences
and contributions to building research capacity from a range of perspectives.
Participants will then be given the opportunity to discuss future strategies
for individuals, research teams and the TLRP as a whole on the future
direction of research capacity building in the UK.
A reception and showcase of TLRP projects will follow the conference at 17.00-19.00. The reception will be opened by Jane Davidson, Welsh Assembly Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning.
