Equity Fellows Panel Discussion, National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSEHE) Panel Discussion

Since 2016, the NCSEHE has supported 12 Equity Fellows to conduct targeted research projects, advancing student equity research, policy and practice. The 2019/20 cohort have each undertaken major year-long projects, variously focusing on regional and remote students, students with disability, mature age students, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. This panel discussion focused on the work of the Fellows and what it means for RRR Australia.

Simone works with regional, rural, and remote schools right across the country to organise for ABC journalists to deliver storytelling and media literacy workshops for their students. Hearing hundreds of true stories from amazing young Australians as part of the Heywire Competition each year is a privilege that Simone feels so lucky to call her job.

NCRRRE Conference Library and Australian and International Journal of Rural Education (AIJRE) Publication Opportunities

Covid-19 has presented new challenges to sharing research in rural education. We are inviting those who submitted abstracts to present at the original conference to record a short video presentation on their work. Throughout 2021, the NCRRRE will collate these into a library and share these video presentations through the rural education community.
