Policy Consortium member Colin Forrest presented a paper at the July 2018 Windsor conference of BELMAS (British Educational Leadership, Management and Administration Society).
Entitled: The evolution of the Learning and Skills Research Network it explored LSRN’s 20 years of fostering the interplay of research evidence between policy makers, administrators, sector leaders and other practitioners. It also looked to the future, in the form of the ‘networking the networks’ initiative, led by LSRN. This is developing a stronger platform for communicating about research in the sector by linking up the many separate networks and organisations involved in research and the use of evidence. It will raise awareness of the various networks and organisations serving research in the sector and make it easier for people to identify and access ones of relevance to them. Over time, it is expected this will help foster collaboration and innovation.
