AARE Conference 2021: Reimagining Education Research
RMIT Melbourne/Online and Adelaide
27 November 2021
Education and education research are at a critical moment. Many of the taken-for-granted ways of thinking and working in early learning settings, schools, universities and other sites of formal and informal education have become untenable in the context of widespread disruption from the global COVID-19 pandemic, an increasingly urgent climate catastrophe and increasing social and economic inequality.
This year’s conference theme invites education researchers to reimagine their ways of thinking and working in complex and uncertain times. The Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE) invites papers to consider different ways to engage with the conference theme of Reimagining Education Research. There is an urgent need for research that moves our thinking forward, responds to rapidly changing conditions and emerging challenges, and which recognises the effects and implications of the social, policy and political conditions that are shaping education and education research.
This reimagining of education research is not limited to research. AARE recognise the need to rethink the traditional conference model, and are continuing to reimagine AARE’s annual conference in ways that keep equity and access at the forefront of our work as a conference committee. Co-hosted in partnership with RMIT School of Education in 2021, this year’s event will bring together researchers virtually and physically in an innovative hybrid conference to connect, network, collaborate and share.
Call for Papers is now open, and will remain open until June 18 2021.
