Join AARE’s Teachers’ Work and Lives SIG for an online symposium on teacher workload and wellbeing. 

Workload and Wellbeing: Research, policy, and experiential narratives aims to foster scholarly dialogue, between researchers, policy-makers, and teachers, and that will continue to contribute to knowledge and understandings of workload and wellbeing issues specifically in the context of Australia’s school teacher workforce. 

Our Workload and Wellbeing: Research, policy, and experiential narratives online symposium includes:

  • Dr Amanda Heffernan, award winning author of The Principal and School Improvement: Theorising Discourse, Policy, and Practice, and co-author of Perceptions of Teachers and Teaching in Australia. Amanda is serving as the Conference Co-Chair for the AARE in 2019-2021.
  • Emeritus Professor Hon. Dr Geoff Gallop A.C., lead author of Valuing the teaching profession: An independent inquiry, and Premier of Western Australia in 2001-2006.
  • Chantel Nunn, a beginning teacher in South Australia, experiencing the complexities of teachers workload and wellbeing, and precarious employment.
  • Brendan Crotty, recent graduate of the Harvard Kennedy Business School and Deputy General Secretary of the Queensland Teachers’ Union, connecting teachers’ experiences with research-informed policy making.

The symposium will be hosted by Rafaan Daliri-Ngametua, a Teachers’ Work and Lives SIG member and PhD candidate based at University of Queensland.
