MirandaNet is a partner of MESH, an organisation that is aiming to empower the teachers’ voice through research. Their view is that professional knowledge is not static but there will never be enough additional funding to keep professional knowledge up to date unless we harness energies and resources already in the education system such as the research that is undertaken for masters thesis and PhD and EdD thesis together with the work of teacher researcher networks. MESH as a system is designed to engage educators in building and updating the evidence base for practice. MESH operates like a professional association with volunteers taking on leading roles in developing and quality assuring research summaries in their own specialist areas. MESH is designed to be managed as a professional association, managed by members, in order to ensure sustainability.
