Description

Find and listen to all past ERRR Podcast episodes here, and see who we'll be having on for future episodes here

Key info:

  • Read & Think: This month's article is entitled “To educate you to be smart”: Disaffected students and the purpose of school in the (not so clever) “lucky country” (download here). It's recommended that attendees read this article, note at least one key point that they learnt from it, and come along with a question or two that they would like to ask the author. Linda has also nominated the following article, Social mobility: 'We must end this obsession with working class gentrification' (download here) as an optional additional reading to enrich the conversation.

  • When? Atttendees to arrive at 5:30pm. This will leave 30 minutes to share questions and loosely plan the interview together prior to the author's arrival at 6pm.

  • Where? Room 509, Kwong Lee Dow Building, 234 Queensberry Street, Parkville VIC 3053 (map)

Our guest this month

This month our guest is Professor Linda J. Graham. Linda is a Professor in the School of Early Childhood and Inclusive Education. Her research interests concern the role of education policy and schooling practices in the development of disruptive student behaviour and the improvement of responses to children who are difficult to teach.

Professor Graham completed her doctoral study, titled “Schooling Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders: educational systems of formation and the ‘disorderly’ school child” at Queensland University of Technology in 2007. Of particular interest was how schooling practices and discourses may be contributing to the increased diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Linda has received the award of Macquarie University's Early Career Researcher of the Year, and received both the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia (ASSA) Paul Bourke Award and the Australian Association for Research in Education (AARE) Early Career Research Award.

She is currently leading a 6-year longitudinal study tracking the school liking, learning, language and behaviour of QLD prep children through to end grade 5, with Prof Sue Walker and Dr Sonia White (School of Early Childhood, QUT), Dr Kathy Cologon(Institute of Early Childhood, Macquarie University), Prof Pamela Snow (LaTrobe Rural Health School), and Prof Robert Pianta (Curry School of Education, University of Virginia).

In 2016, she began leading an Education Horizon project funded by the Queensland Government, “Empowering learners: using student voice, videorecorded classroom interactions and teacher feedback to develop positive learning environments in high-need Queensland secondary schools”, with Dr Amanda Mergler and Dr Jenna Gillett-Swan.

Linda has appeared in numerous print, radio and television media and is a strong advocate that inclusive education is a foundation platform for broader social inclusion and the development of an inclusive democracy.

Linda's full biography can be found here.

A quick note on the podcast: Following the ERRR live event the recording will be edited prior to release of the podcast. This means that if anyone makes a comment that they wouldn't like to be on the podcast, they can just indicate this and said comment will be omitted from the final product. If you don't feel confident speaking into the mic during the event please don't let that deter you from coming along. All are welcome whether they'd like to actively participate or just sit back and enjoy the conversation.

What is the ERRR?

The Education Research Reading Room brings together passionate teachers and educators with inspiring education thought leaders. Each month we contact a prominent figure in the education landscape and ask them ‘If every teacher and educator in the world could spend an hour reading your work, what would you want them to read?’

Attendees then read this piece in preparation for a live event with the author to discuss and explore the topic in more depth. The subsequent conversation becomes the Education Research Reading Room (ERRR) Podcast.

Find and listen to all past ERRR Podcast episodes here, and see who we'll be having on for future episodes here.

Schedule:

5:30pm-Attendees meet, briefly discuss the article, and plan a series of questions for the author
6pm-The author joins and the discussion/interview and recording commences
7ish-Wrap up of the interview with the author, some attendees may like to continue the conversation over dinner or a drink.

This event is free of charge and open to all. Numbers are capped to ensure that it stays as a conversation rather than a lecture. Preference will be given to those who sign up first and those of minority or oppressed groups.*

We hope to see you in the ERRR!

This event will be held on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation.
