Event Details


Contemporary Approaches to Research in Mathematics, Science, Health & Environmental Education Symposium

This symposium focuses on practical and theoretical aspects of research methodology. 

Hosted by Deakin University's strategic research centre in Education, Research for Educational Impact (REDI), it follows the highly successful symposia held annually at Deakin University (from 1993 to 2005 and again from 2010 to 2018), in which methodological techniques and issues (such as socio-cultural perspectives, productive use of quantitative data, collaborative practitioner research designs and analysing discourse) have been discussed in a lively, informal setting. 

It is expected that academic researchers, teachers and higher degree by research (HDR) students will gain from the symposium.

Keynote speakers


Kathleen Nolan

Kathleen Nolan

Kathleen Nolan is a Professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina (Saskatchewan, Canada), where she teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in mathematics curriculum, qualitative research, and contemporary issues in education. Her research focuses on mathematics teacher education, exploring issues of teacher identity and the regulatory practices of schooling, learning and knowing. Bourdieu's social field theory and theories of critical, culturally responsive education feature prominently in Kathleen's work. In addition to more than 45 published articles, book chapters, and conference proceedings papers, Kathleen has authored and/or co-edited two books, with a third edited collection, entitledSocial Theory for Teacher Education Research: Beyond the technical-rational to be published by Bloomsbury in 2019.
