We are more than a network, we are a Community

The Centre for Real-World Learning at the University of Winchester has teamed up with universities around the country to create a unique professional learning community dedicated to expansive education. eedNET is a non-profit organisation, we are not trying to sell training or CPD, we simply want our members to be equipped with the research, information and skills to develop their own practice as teachers so they can develop young people ready for whatever the 21st Century will throw at them.

Five good reasons to join this exciting network for teachers

  1. To be part of a growing movement of teachers who want to do more for their students than coach for exams
  2. Access the latest research and thinking on teaching practice
  3. Training to use Action Research in your classroom practice
  4. See your work published and share your experience with colleagues
  5. Rediscover the spirit that made you chose to teach in the first place

The network exists to

  • Develop thinking and practice in relation to expansive education and what it means to become a powerful 21st century learner
  • Link teachers to universities, providing high-quality training, either face-to-face or using distance learning, that enables them to undertake teacher enquiries in their own setting
  • Provide a place for teachers to publish their own enquiries and see new work developed by others
  • Connect teachers with one another encouraging local networking, idea sharing and professional development between like-minded professionals
