Dear Colleague

I take pleasure in inviting you to submit a proposal for the 2010 Annual Conference at Warwick University.

We are pleased that for our 36th Annual Conference we will be returning to Warwick University where we held a successful conference in 2006. The University is located in the heart of England, adjacent to the city of Coventry - 3 miles (5 kilometres) from the city centre - and on the border with Warwickshire. The campus of the University of Warwick compries 290 hectares and covers four medieval farmsteads: Gibbet Hill, Tocil, Cryfield and Cryfield Grange Farms. Warwick Arts Centre, also situated on campus, has undergone a major redevelopment and the University also has excellent sports facilities which will be open to delegates.

The Keynote speakers for 2010 include Tom Schuller, who is the director of an independent inquiry into the Future for Lifelong Learning in the UK; John Gardner – BERA President, Queen’s University Belfast; Louise Morley, University of Sussex; and Ann Phoenix, Institute of Education, University of London.

There will also be a panel discussion on ‘The Impact of Education Research’ which will be chaired by Andrew Pollard, UK Strategic Forum for Research in Education and the speakers participating in the discussion include Lesley Saunders, Education Consultant; Peter Tymms, Durham University; Judy Sebba, University of Sussex and Richard Bartholomew, Department for Children, Schools and Families.

Conference Committee continues to build upon the success of previous conferences. We have noted comments and feedback from BERA 2009 and have implemented a number of changes to the programme and the systems underpinning our conference. There are a range of distinguished speakers and BERA 2010 promises to maintain the high standard of BERA conferences.

We look forward to meeting up with colleagues and friends old and new in Warwick 2010. Enjoy BERA 2010.
