2017 AARE Conference
The Realm Hotel, Canberra Australia
26 November 2017 - 30 November 2017
Education: What’s politics got to do with it?
The AARE conference brings together researchers from across the world, as well as Australia, who work in diverse educational fields. The Association’s wide range of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) gives a sense of this diversity. The conference is a space within which both well established and early career academics can find a forum to provoke debate, stimulate discussion, offer new ideas and encourage the dissemination of research findings.
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Education: What’s politics got to do with it?’ and we look forward to many vibrant discussions during the conference about the importance of educational research and its ability to effect positive change both in Australia and internationally.
