Directing the Teaching and Learning Research Programme: Or "Trying to Fly a Glider Made of Jelly"
Pollard, Andrew
British Journal of Educational Studies, v58 n1 p27-46 2010
TLRP's generic phase (1999-2009) is believed to have been the largest ever UK investment in educational research. This paper describes the critique from which TLRP emerged, its strategic positioning and the roles of successive directors and their teams in its development. The paper offers an early stock take of TLRP's achievements from the perspective of the last Programme Director. The efficacy of the form of the Programme, once likened to "a glider made of jelly", is discussed. (Contains 1 figure.)
