AARE ECR & PGS Members SIG event series

We would like to invite you to join us online in a series of events for ECR and PGS members to learn more about the AARE special interest groups (SIGs).

The AARE covers a broad range of topics in education research and have several SIGs to support members to come together and discuss topics of shared interest. SIGs undertake a diverse range of activities including organising events, discussion groups, research training, convening symposia, and contributions to AARE news around a focused topic. Many PGS and ECR members develop networks through SIGs that last throughout their education research career.

We will be hosting three online sessions with representatives from different SIGs attending each session. At the sessions we will provide an overview of what SIGs can offer, SIG representatives will provide an overview of their SIG, and there will be time to ask SIG representatives questions.

Members are welcome to register to attend more than one session because each session will have different SIG representatives in attendance.

The details of the sessions are as follows:

Session one
Time: Tuesday 10th May 4:00-5:00pm AEST
SIG representatives in attendance: Cultural Historical and Activity Theory, Sexualities and Cultural Studies, Language and Literacy, Poststructural Theory, Policy and Politics in Education

Getting published during and after your Higher Degree by Research 11 am - 12 pm AEDT (Australian Eastern Daylight Time Canberra/Sydney/Melbourne) *please check your local time

AARE members free
Non-AARE member $5

The what, where and how of getting your work published relies to some extent on insider knowledge that isn't always immediately accessible to new researchers.  This workshop will seek to demystify the process, focussing on strategies for getting your work published both during and ager HDR candidature.  We will explore key considerations in pitching your work to journals and publishers, and consider the benefits and potential drawbacks of publishing via different routes.  The workshop will aim to give participants insight into the processes of publishing, particularly in the case of journals, from the perspective of both editor and author.  It will additionally point to some useful resources to support postgraduate and early career researchers in seeking publication, and provide opportunities for participants to ask questions about getting their work 'out there'.
