Description

'A D&R System for Education' published by the UK's Innovation Unit and written by Eidos Board member and former Demos Director, Tom Bentley together with Sarah Gillinson, makes a number of recommendations for the two newly-formed UK education departments - the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) and the Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS) and also for the government's new National Council for Educational Excellence, which the new UK Prime Minister will chair.

The publication draws on learnings about innovation and research within education and other sectors such as healthcare, information technology and pharmaceuticals. It also examines what we are learning about the importance of users and collaborative development in generating and spreading innovation in other sectors from manufacturing to social care. In effect, this signals a shift from Research and Development (R&D) to Development and Research (D&R) and the publication calls for greater support for the involvement of teachers and school leaders in this process.
