Research Unlocked 2018

On the afternoon of Tuesday 20th November, The Whitefield Research & Development Centre is holding its fifth 'Research Unlocked' symposium. This year the focus is wellbeing and we'll be showcasing research around how a serious focus on happiness can bring tangible benefits to both pupils and staff across the curriculum, within the classroom and beyond.

The symposium starts at 1:00pm and will run until 4:30pm.  Sessions include:

  • Strategies for managing anxiety in autism: Current evidence and open challenges Sebastian Gaigg, PhD, Deputy Head of Department, Psychology, Autism Research Group, City, University of London
  • The benefits of combining music and physical education lessons for children with autism Maria Papazoglou, Head of PE Whitefield Schools
  • Structuring classroom teams to boost staff wellbeingOrla Dennehy, Teacher, Whitefield Schools
