Education RCTs: Past, present and futureWhat do we really know about why some children do better at school than others? What are the world's leading education researchers currently working on? In this session, academics from the US and UK will give presentations of their work and the narrative that drives it, before considering where future efforts should be applied.
Speakers include: Todd Rogers, Simon Burgess, Anna Vignoles, Sally Sadoff
As I don't know much about Randomised Controlled Trials (RCT) in education, I googled the names to see the stuff they do. My colleague also said that they will most likely publish some video recordings of the sessions - mental note to my self, check back later!
