How does knowledge exchange work in education? | Research for the Real World

[Listeners may experience occasional audio issues at the start of the podcast - things start to sound better after the 2-minute mark.]

Dr Amelia Roberts joins Dr Humera Iqbal in the Research for the Real World virtual studio to share examples of what knowledge exchange looks like through her experience and work on special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

As the Deputy Director of the UCL Centre for Inclusive Education (CIE), Amelia’s role involves working with UK and international partners to improve the attainment and participation of pupils with SEND. And when it comes to examples of knowledge exchange in full flight, look no further than the Supporting Wellbeing, Emotional Regulation and Learning (SWERL) and Making Autism Research Accessible to Teachers (MARAT) programmes, both lead by Amelia.

The pair also discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected children across abilities and degrees of disadvantage, as well as how the CIE is formulating a rapid response variation of their knowledge exchange programmes to mitigate these effects as schools begin to reopen.
