IEAA is working with Australian Education International (AEI) to develop and establish an International Education Research Network. The Network will support established and emerging researchers as well as individuals in industry, business and government who are interested in research on all aspects of international education.
The focus is multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral, involving Higher Education, Vocational Education and Training (VET), English Language Teaching (ELT) and Schools sectors.
See the following link for a brief discussion paper on the proposed goals and functions of the network:
In order to deliver the best outcome for researchers and practitioners interested in international education research, we would like to hear your views on what the Research Network and the associated IT platform should include.
The survey will take no more than 5 minutes to complete and your input is highly valued.
The purpose of this survey is to explore the functions and requirements of an International Education Research Network (IERN), seeking input and advice from both practitioners and researchers.
Australian Education International (a division of DEEWR) has contracted the International Education Association of Australia (IEAA) to conduct the survey and to develop and establish the Network. The objective is to establish a Network that has the capacity to impact both public policy and institutional policy and practice in all aspects of international education.
The Network will support established and emerging researchers as well as individuals in industry, business and government who are interested in the directions of research and its potential practical outcomes. The focus is multi-disciplinary and multi-sectoral - involving Higher Education, Vocational Education and Training (VET), English Language Teaching (ELT) and the schools sectors.
Research in International Education
International Education is dynamic and multi-faceted. It encompasses a broad range of processes, activities and experiences. Research in international education therefore occurs in and across different disciplines. For the purposes of this survey research in international education is defined very broadly to include disciplines such as business, economics, politics, international relations, marketing, psychology, counselling, sociology, demography, public relations, education, applied linguistics, global studies, migration, diasporas, public policy and governance.
Research stakeholders may conduct, commission, use, fund or lead research. The perspectives of all stakeholder groups are necessary and important if we are to develop an effective International Education Researcher’s Network. Regardless of your level or type of involvement and your role in research we seek your input and ideas.
