Megan Dixon

Regional Delivery Lead, North West

Megan is the North West Regional Lead, working in the Dissemination and Impact team. Her role includes working strategically across the North West to widen the reach and impact of the EEF and the Research School Network.

Megan joined the EEF, on secondment in January 2019, from her substantive role as Director of the Aspirer Research School and Director of English for the Aspire Educational Trust. With almost twenty years’ experience in the classroom, she is a specialist literacy teacher and trainer, with considerable expertise in teaching children who find it hardest to learn. Prior to working at the Aspire Educational Trust, she has worked as a class teacher, Local Authority Literacy consultant and school improvement advisor and trainer.

Megan is fascinated by how we can transfer research evidence into effective classroom practice. She is often found reading research and working with researchers to develop practical strategies to transfer their work into teaching and learning. She is always involved in at least one research trial and is a regular contributor to the TES.
