Informing Policy Through ResearchAn evening with the Minister for Education, Science and Training
The Hon Julie Bishop MP
Come and meet the Federal Minister. Find out about her plans for educational change in Australia. Bring your questions.
As an educational research society, WAIER supports the use of research to inform policy making. We ask if there is transparency in the link between research and policy.
- Are major educational initiatives based on reliable research?
- What are the links between policy debates and educational research?
