The national ORIM network day took place at The University of Sheffield on 26th May 2017 and was attended by 25 colleagues working with REAL and ORIM across the country. It was a very successful day where research and ideas were shared about collaborative learning and the positive impact that using the ORIM model has on learning for children and their families.

Professor Cathy Nutbrown spoke about the need for inclusive and collaborative learning and how the impact of ORIM and REAL work can be shown within a national perspective. A new film has been produced which recognises the dedicated work of practitioners across the country and this can be seen via the ORIM website.
