Welcome from the Head of School 

Welcome to the 2024 School of Education Postgraduate Research Conference. The annual conference is a cornerstone of our vibrant research culture and an opportunity to hear from early career researchers undertaking important work. This year’s theme highlights the importance of diverse voices in education while also raising questions on our shared visions for education in the future, particularly in light of pressing global challenges. Thank you to the organising committee for their excellent work that has made this conference a reality, and welcome to postgraduate researchers and guests from UQ and beyond.
