The Chartered College of Teaching, the professional body for the teaching profession, is currently running an online practitioner research poster for teachers and other education practitioners, offering the opportunity to share small-scale educational research and inquiry projects within and beyond the 10,000-strong Chartered College community.
The competition is open to all members and non-members of the Chartered College, with the aim of collating and disseminating the many great examples of practitioner research across disciplines and phases. Poster submissions can be based on research projects conducted for formal programmes such as a PGCE, a Master’s degree, PhD or a leadership programme, or based on an inquiry project completed individually or part of a wider institutional initiative / investigation.
The winning posters will be selected in a range of categories by a panel made up of teachers, school leaders and researchers. Entries will be judged on the quality of research design, relevance to practice, and quality of both written and visual communication. There will be prizes for the winning posters for different settings, for example Early Years, SEND and Post-16 as well as for different groups of entrants such as ITT students. The competition is free to enter and winners will receive book bundles and tokens, as well as having their posters on display at the Chartered College’s Annual Conference in London on 17th February 2018. Posters that meet the entry requirements will also be displayed on the Chartered College website in an online poster conference.
The closing date for submissions is 31st January 2018. You can find full details of the competition, as well as examples and guidance on creating a poster on the Chartered College of Teaching's website.
