National Application Form – to conduct research in schools in more than one state or territory in Australia
AARE is partnering with schooling systems across Australia to promote the implementation of the National Application Form. The form applies to researchers who require approval from more than one educational jurisdiction to conduct research in Australia.
Information on participating in the trial is available, below.
For further information, contact your participating jurisdictions
The Network values your input into the Application Form and appraisal process, and is seeking your feedback through the evaluation form. It is hoped that this feedback will enable the Network to effectively assess whether the Form is user friendly to complete, reduces duplication of effort, and that jurisdiction review processes are efficiently streamlined, transparent and mutually beneficial to all stakeholders.
The evaluation form can be submitted by mail or e-mail to the following address:
Mail: Ms B. Vickers, System Performance Branch, Department of Education, 151 Royal Street, East Perth WA 6004
e-mail: Research and policy
Thank you for your feedback.
AARE Oral History Project
The Australian Association for Research in Education is seeking to record accounts of its history from the perspectives of members who have built and shaped the Association. The AARE Executive is inviting foundation members, past presidents, and long-serving members of the AARE to participate in an interview about their career in educational research, the emergence of the AARE and its current role, and their observations of educational research in Australia more generally. These interviews will be available online for viewing by members of the Association and future researchers, and will contribute to a living archive of ‘stories of association’ about the AARE.
These interviews can be conducted in person or participants can record or write responses in their own time. There will also be opportunities for interviews to be held at the time of the AARE annual conference, which will take place in Fremantle later this year.
Professor Julie McLeod (Melbourne Graduate School of Education, University of Melbourne) co- convenes the History and Education SIG and is undertaking this project at the invitation of the AARE Executive; project and research assistance is provided by postgraduate student Ms Rosie Barron. If you are interested in ﬁnding out more about the project, would like to be interviewed, or have recommendations for people we should contact for interviews or for further information, please get in touch with either Julie or Rosie. email@example.com, (03) 8344 3455 firstname.lastname@example.org
