Pedagogy, Education and Praxis, Brisbane, 30 November

30 Nov 2012 - 9:30am
30 Nov 2012 - 5:00pm
Etc/GMT+11

The Griffith University School of Education and Professional Studies and the Griffith Institute for Educational Research (GIER) are hosting a seminar for the International Pedagogy Education and Praxis (PEP) Research Network on the Gold Coast campus. The PEP
Network consists of educational researchers from Australia, Sweden,
Finland, Norway, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Canada and
Columbia united by a concern that the bureaucratisation and
deprofessionalisation of education is eroding the moral, social and
political commitments that inform pedagogical practice. They share a
conviction of the need for forms of educational research which will
revive and restore these commitments.

In this seminar presenters from a range of these countries will
report on collaborative empirical and theoretical work with a particular
focus on practice theory and action research.

Dear Colleagues,

Item 6. Membership

In joining this discussion, I invite you to respond to the following issues and add others in the light of your own experiences.

  1. Membership is falling. Historically, our membership was increased and broadened by including membership in conference registrations. This has not happened at the recent World Congress and national conference. With the forthcoming conference in Adelaide we need to consider the value of including membership for non-ALAR participants. What are your thoughts on this?
  2. In what ways have you promoted membership /experienced membership promotion? For example at the last ALAR event you attended- in what ways was membership encouraged for those attending?
  3. What plans of action should we as an organisation follow this year to maintain / increase membership?
