On Wednesday 22 May 2019 the Teacher-Researchers pilot project was officially launched at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education. Hosted by Maxine McKew, the launch provided special guests with an overview of the project aims and activities to date. Guests were also introduced to the five teachers undertaking research via the pilot study. A/Professor Larissa McLean Davies spoke about the importance of diverse Australian literature in educational contexts and the impetus for this suite of work.
The event also included a presentation from Stella Prize Chair Seri Rankin about the links between Stella’s schools program and the Teacher-Researchers project and opportunities for teachers and researchers moving forward.
We thank all attendees for joining us at this exciting event.
