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.

AARE President
