For teachers

Research Update communicates research produced by the MEC for primary and secondary teachers.

The focus is on news about recent and upcoming research, as well as information about other activities in the MEC that are relevant to schools and their students.

Original Research Update was published as a self-contained newsletter once a term, and the archive of newsletters is available as pdfs below.

Now articles appear as part of Loughborough University's Schools and Colleges Liaison team's schools newsletter which is sent out every month. These articles also appear below.

If you would like more information about the newsletter please email your postal address to Ian Jones at
