(2018) Mobilising knowledge through global partnerships to support research-informed teaching: five models for translational research here). A sixth model for teacher engagement is under development.

Engage research commissioners and  research users in discussions about how to change practices so as to ensure research knowledge accumulates, is relevant and accessible to teachers and parents and other users of educational research.

Extend the network of organisations committed to open sharing of knowledge via research summaries.

Audience: A balance of participants is sought to represent different perspectives and opportunities within the education sector.

Format: Short presentations followed by debate and discussion on round tables with outcomes captured, published and acted on where possible. This Summit builds on two earlier Summits, the ways of working for MESH and the work presented on the MESHGuides site are outcomes of this consultation.
