Australian Association of Research in Education (AARE) - Rural Education SIG

As we look to make more international connections, I wanted to post from information about the Rural Education SIG of the Australian Association of Research in Education (AARE).


Australian Association of Research in Education (AARE)

Rural Education SIG


SIG Name: Rural Education

Aims: The Rural Education Special Interest Group aims to foster and promote research and scholarly work into the needs of rural, regional and remote schools and other educational settings and their communities.

Rationale: A focus on rural education is imperative for the economic and social well being for vibrant and productive rural communities. Across Australia there are many different research groups focusing of the needs of rural schools and their communities. This SIG will provide a place for these researchers to share their work and to build from each other’s work. The SIG will be a forum for dissemination as well as a platform to engage with policy makers. The SIG will also enable cross international opportunities with members from other Education Associations such as the Rural Education SIG in AERA.

Research interests:

Recruitment and retention of high quality (rural, regional and remote) teachers

Access and opportunity for teacher and leader professional learning and development opportunities

Rural Youth and families– pathways, choices and opportunities

Rural Community renewal

Indigenous education

Rural education and health

Convenor and contact details: Professor Simone White

Head of School and Associate Dean

School of Education (Gippsland Campus)

Northways Road, Churchill, VIC, 3842

Telephone: (03) 5127124

Email: simone.white@monash.edu


Hoping this is the start of a great international partnership.
