La Trobe University City Campus, Level 2, 360 Collins Street, Melbourne

Sociology of Education and Social Justice SIG Event

This workshop brings together leading scholars and academics from around Australia and overseas to discuss existing and emerging research on practical approaches to community engagement for inclusive education. The workshop focus aligns closely with the aims of the Sociology of Education and Social Justice SIGs at the Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE). A bottom-up approach to research and practice in education that engages with schools and communities is the first critical step in addressing the significant disadvantages that students from culturally and linguistically diverse and Indigenous communities and those from minority groups face in education. This workshop offers a range of activities followed by the keynote from Professor Tyrone Howard, including seminars, workshops and roundtable discussions led by academics and scholars on fostering strong school-community engagement for equity, diversity and social justice education.
