This is the journal of the papers presented at the first Clare and Limerick Education Centres Educational Research Conference, held at Limerick Education Centre in March 2011. The theme of the conference was “Promoting Teacher Continued Professional Development Through Teacher Engagement in Research” in which papers were delivered on ICT, Curriculum Development and School Leadership. It was a landmark event for education researchers in the Mid-West Region of Ireland where it provided a forum for practitioners to showcase their work and share their learning through reflective practice in a professional and collegial setting.
