Research seminar series

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.

Seminars are aimed primarily at those involved or interested in educational research. Attendance is free and teachers and other professionals are welcome to attend. 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.

We also have a listing of past research seminars, where in some cases you can download recordings from the event.

The table below shows upcoming events.

Seminar by Professor Linda Woodhead (Lancaster University) 'Religion in Schools: cultural change in Britain and the need for reform'

On the one hand, 25 years of research on changing beliefs and values in modern Britain, and on the other a more recent proposal for change in the way religion is handled in state-sector schools in England and Wales (‘A New Settlement’, with Charles Clarke). After analysing some of the most profound cultural changes in Britain, I suggest how these have a bearing on the future of RE, school assemblies and faith schools. This seminar will be recorded.
