Networks

"Finally, we are seeing networks of practice evolve organically out of a professional desire to improve, by teachers at all stages of their career, these are research-led and supported by an excellent journal, bringing research to the hands of the people who need it most: the teachers implementing new ideas in the classroom."

Dave Kelly, teacher of English and Assistant Principal
