WELCOME FROM PRESIDENT
We look forward to welcoming you to the 2018 annual AARE Conference, to be held at the historic University of Sydney. The AARE conference brings together researchers and educators 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 disseminate research findings.
The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Education Research Matters: Impact and Engagement ’ 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 2018 AARE Conference at Australia's first University.
