The conference program will be organised into streams corresponding to the themes or focus areas of AARE Special Interest Groups.

Featured Symposiums

Notifications for Feature Symposiums will be sent early August.

Featured Symposiums acknowledge the commitment of AARE to honour and showcase current and outstanding educational research. 

Some submissions will be selected as Featured Symposiums with any submissions not successful being programmed as Symposiums within the general conference program.

Please note, each submission will be assessed separately against the criteria by a Featured Symposium sub-Committee comprised of experienced researchers who are members of the Association. The Symposium proposer must identify a convener/chair and will usually also identify a discussant for the session.

Featured Symposiums will be scheduled in special sessions of the conference program with a small number of parallel symposiums in each session.
