Wednesday, 8 June 2016

Professor Jenny Gore of the School of Education has been selected to deliver the prestigious Radford Lecture at this year's Australian Association for Research in Education Conference in Melbourne. Professor Gore will join a long list of celebrated figures who have been invited to present the lecture since it's inception in 1984.

Professor Jenny Gore

To honour Dr William C. Radford’s long record of commitment to promoting research in education and his contribution to the development of the Australian Association for Research in Education, each year AARE invites a distinguished figure in the area of educational research to present a keynote lecture at its annual conference. Since 1984 the Lecture has been subsequently published in The Australian Educational Researcher.

Professor Gore is currently Director of the Teachers and Teaching Research Centre and Chief Editor of the international journal, Teaching and Teacher Education. To date, Jenny has won more than $5.1 million in research funding including several grants awarded by the Australian Research Council. Her educational and research interests consistently centre on quality and equity, ranging across such topics as teacher socialisation, reform in teacher education, pedagogical reform, and teacher development. Widely published and cited, her current major research projects include a longitudinal study exploring the formation of educational and career aspirations in the middle years of schooling and a randomised controlled trial investigating the impact of Quality Teaching Rounds. Of particular note is her decade-long program of work on Quality Teaching, which has had significant impact in public, Catholic, and independent schools, especially in NSW and the ACT. This work subsequently led to the conceptualisation of Quality Teaching Rounds, an approach to teacher development. Widely regarded as one of Australia’s leading teaching and teacher education academics, Jenny is deeply committed to supporting teachers in delivering high quality and equitable outcomes for students.

This year's AARE Conference will run from November 27 - December 1.
