Framed by the conference theme of Transforming the Future of Education: The Role of Research, the 2022 AARE Pre-Conference provides a rich opportunity for postgraduate and early career researchers to hear from internationally recognised educational researchers speaking about the impact of their work. Dr Sam Osborne (UniSA) and Associate Professor Stewart Riddle (USQ) share the ways in which their work is making a difference in education, community and policy. Associate Professor Nicole Mockler (University of Sydney) adds to this rich discussion, sharing insights into publishing educational research. Award-winning early career researchers will share their stories, challenges and successes and provide insights into the early career researcher experience. Further, there will be an opportunity for attendees to present a “Lightning Talk” about their research as a means of garnering productive feedback and research connection. We look forward to sharing this incredible day of learning and connection with you!
*A Lightning Talk is a short 3-minute summary of your research (this can be presented verbally or you may create 1-2 slides to guide your talk) followed by an opportunity for you to ask the audience about an area of your research that you would like to input on or feedback about.
If you are interested in presenting a “Lightning Talk”, please email with a short 3 sentence topic summary either:
