#BELMASchat is an opportunity to exchange thoughts on the aspect of education chosen for that conversation and we welcome your suggestions – from policy to governance, personal experience to the interpretation of academic research.

Our twitter chats are held on a monthly basis and all are welcome to join in the discussion.  Each month's discussion is collated in a Storify and posted here.
