Projects | The RCBN Team | Contact
We are working primarily
with projects and individuals involved on the Teaching and Learning Research
Programme. In order to develop efficient and effective communication with those
projects and individuals we operate two main channels of communication, one
at the project-level and one at an individual level.
Each TLRP project or network has a Principal Investigator
who acts as a first point of contact for the RCBN. Generally any news
or information we wish to pass on to the project/network teams will come
via this person. Similarly, to help us keep in close and regular contact
with the projects each of our Executive Group
members have been nominated to take responsibility for ensuring that we
are communicating effectively with each research team. It is hoped that
this will ensure we can keep abreast of developments, particularly of
methodological and conceptual issues, that arise within each project.
Since our main concern is for the professional development of each member
of the TRLP we strongly encourage everyone to contact
our Research Capacity Building Network office in Cardiff as and whenever
necessary and irrespective of whether they are the Principal Invesitagator,
Project Director or Research Associate. This may be to obtain advice on
any aspect of research or to request some form of training in a particular
research skill. You can contact us by telephone, email or via our website,
and we will be happy to follow up any request you may have.
Since our activities and services are available to all educational researchers
we are also working closely with other organisations. In particular, we
have close liaison with the National Educational
Research Forum (NERF), the British Educational
Research Association (BERA) and its members, the
Learning and Skills Research Network, which is part of the Learning
and Skills Development Agency, and the Universities
Council for the Education of Teachers (UCET).
