2021 AARE conference

Our Featured symposium at the 2021 Conference of the Australian Association for Research on Education (AARE)

The 2021 AARE conference, co-hosted by the Australian Association for Research in Education and the RMIT School of Education, will be held from 28 November to 2 December. The theme is Reimagining Education Research, and over 900 proposals were submitted. Our research team’s submission ‘Teaching How to Learn: Investigating teachers’ beliefs and practices about how to promote independent and self-regulated learning in the classroom”, was not only accepted, it was selected as a ‘Featured  Symposium’:

‘Featured symposiums acknowledge the commitment of AARE to honour and showcase current and outstanding educational research. Featured symposia will be scheduled in special sessions of the conference program with a small number of parallel symposiums in each session”

The symposium will present the results of research currently in progress under ARC Discovery Grant (DP190102366) Teaching How to Learn: Promoting Self-Regulated Learning in STEM Classrooms, a collaboration between Flinders University, the University of Melbourne, Goethe University Frankfurt, and Arizona State University. The purpose of the research is to better understand current teachers’ beliefs and practices related to the promotion of student independent and self-regulated learning (SRL), and to design interventions for pre-service and in-service teachers.
