2016 AARE Theory Workshops

AARE invites early career researchers and higher degree research students to attend one (or more) weekend/s of research workshops in 2016. These popular workshops are organised collaboratively with universities and provide opportunities for participants to:

  • be immersed in theory
  • consider how theory applies to their research
  • engage in discussions with – and to learn from – experienced researchers/experts from the field.

In 2016, the workshop weekends will be conducted at:

  • Griffith University, Brisbane (Southbank), 13-15 May
  • University of Western Australia, Perth, 28-30 October
  • RMIT, Melbourne (City Campus), TBA

For details about the workshops and the presenters, please go to the AARE website:  Online registration is available.

AARE is continuing to offer the Alison Lee ‘Theory in Educational
Research’ Scholarships. Two scholarships are available for each of the workshop weekends.
Details about the scholarships and how to apply are available from:

Further details about the workshops are available from: or email. Please note that these workshops are generally very
popular and fill quickly.

One exciting outcome of last year's Theory Workshop weekend in Launceston, Tasmania, was a publication co-authored by four participants and one presenter. Early this year, the article, 'The emotional knots of academicity: A collective biography of academic subjectivities and spaces', authored by Jennifer Charteris, Susanne Gannon, Eve Mayes, Adele Nye and Lauren Stephenson, was published in Higher Education Research and Development. Congratulations to the authors!
