Welcome from President

AARE respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land where the conference will take place. For the Woiwurrung (Wurundjeri), Boonwurrung, Taungurong, Dja Dja Wurrung and the Wathaurung groups who form the Kulin Nation, Melbourne has always been an important meeting place for events of social, educational, sporting and cultural significance.

Welcome from PresidentWe look forward to welcoming you to the 2016 annual AARE Conference, to be held at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), the largest stadium in the southern hemisphere. The last time the conference was held in Melbourne was in 2010 and we are delighted to be once again in one of the world’s most harmonious and culturally diverse communities. Melbourne is renowned for its vibrant energy, café-filled laneways, cultural institutions, sporting events, and beautiful parks. It is an easy city to navigate, particularly with the tram system which makes moving around the city a special experience. The MCG is within walking distance of the city centre and many cultural attractions. There are wonderful opportunities for networking in the many fine eateries and restaurants in Melbourne, in addition to social networking events during the conference.

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 ‘Transforming Education Research’ 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 2016 AARE Conference in Melbourne.
