The ‘L’ in EDDi’s header this week doesn’t stand for ‘Large’. We are not about to sell you an EDDi branded line of t-shirts.
It’s the Roman numeral for 50.
We are 50 today.
It seems fitting then that our 50th edition is a traditional one. No bells. No whistles. No extras. Just three traditional academic digests. A return to the raison d'être of EDDi: quick, easy to read, summaries of academic research.
In the spirit of celebration, this week’s digests are incredibly strong. They are each rather different but all have one thing in common – they originate from the Institute of Education, Manchester University, UK.
One of the world’s leading research institutes, the Institute of Education, Manchester University, has generated enormous amounts of high-quality research into national and international education. These three pieces are no exception.
We highly recommend you take the time to read each one.
What we present here is only a very small sample of the breadth and range of studies undertaken over many decades by the members of this institute, and which have come to inform practice and policy in Ministries of Education, schools, colleges and universities around the world.
Happy reading … and cheers to the next 50 EDDitions.
