The British Educational Research Association’s (BERA) Public Engagement and Impact Award recognises and celebrates the impact of research and practice in the education community and how both have demonstrably engaged the public. Every year BERA offer two prizes, one for individual researchers and one for a team.
I am delighted to be named the 2020 Individual Winner for my research “Leading the Future of Science and Technology Education in Wales”, alongside the UCL Centre for Holocaust Education for their team award on “Tackling widespread myths and misconceptions through transformatory teacher training and sustained support for schools”.
You can read the full award statements and profile from yesterday’s announcement; there will also be an invited article in BERA’s magazine Research Intelligence in the near future.
A big thank you to all of my collaborators and colleagues for supporting this work over the recent years, especially at Swansea University (and in particular, the Technocamps project), Computing at School, and BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.
