How the national phonics test is failing England and why it will fail Australia too

AARE supports diversity and equity in the Association.

As President I want to offer support to the marriage equality fight. Our members will have their own perspectives on issues and I support their rights to these opinions of course, but as President I want to ensure that the Association is open to supporting issues related to equality in Australia and particularly in education contexts such as Universities, schools and early childhood settings.

AARE committed to evidenced based research

AARE is committed to continuing to provide evidenced based research to inform debates about teacher education and the teaching profession.

AARE sends support to our colleagues at Murdoch University after the Fair Work Commission upheld the University's decision to terminate workplace agreements.

AARE supports high quality education for all in Australia. Achieving this requires high quality, well funded universities with academic staff who are valued and supported.

The Australian Educational Researcher (AER) is the scholarly journal of the Australian Association for Research in Education.

AARE Conference 2017

AARE Conference 2017

Canberra - Sunday, 26 - Thursday 30 November 2017

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2017 annual AARE Conference, to be held at the prestigious Hotel Realm Canberra. 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.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 2017 AARE Conference in Australia's capital, Canberra.
