Research Seminars 2011/12

Each term the Graduate School of Education arranges a series of Research Seminars for staff, students, visitors from other educational institutions and partnership schools, where internationally renowned academics present their current or recently completed research and scholarly work. The seminars are aimed primarily at those involved or interested in educational research. Attendance is free and teachers and other professionals are welcome to attend. The Seminars are held at the Graduate School of Education, College of Social Sciences and International Studies, University of Exeter, St Luke's Campus, Heavitree Road, Exeter EX1 2LU.

These Seminars also provide a forum for colleagues from various institutions to meet and discuss current issues. We hope that as many of you as possible will attend the seminars and join in the informal discussions afterwards. There is no need to inform us in advance - just turn up at the seminar.

The table below shows upcoming events. We also have a listing of past research seminars for 2011/12, where in some cases you can download recordings from the event.

Lecture by Professor Michael W. Apple (University of Wisconsin), Can Education Change Society?

I critically examine a number of these claims and argue for a position in which education can indeed participate in social transformation. Full details
