We're passionate at GIER
Members of the Griffith Institute for Educational Research are passionate about demonstrating the impact of their research, so seek to disseminate their research findings to the widest possible audience. We have found that our Twilight Lecture series, and other lectures and workshops, successfully achieve this goal, and invite you to participate in these events throughout the year. You will discover that GIER’s applied research projects, in collaboration with industry partners, education systems, schools, community and not-for-profit organisations, are readily translated into practice, and encompass real and measurable impact that is making a better world.

Celebrating Women in Academia - February 2019
This event featured a panel of contributing authors from two books - 'Lived Experiences: Women in Academia' and 'Women Activating Agency in Academia' – who discussed key themes emerging from their chapters to liberate thinking around the "lived experiences" of women in academia. The panelists included women from local and international universities chosen for their interest, expertise and commitment to the success and well-being of women in academia. The event was hosted by Prof Greer Johnson, Director of GIER, and Dr Ali Black, Senior Lecturer in the School of Education, University of the Sunshine Coast. Ali is the co-editor of the two recently published books. The event was an informative and inspiring evening of personal accounts and open discussion which celebrates the work of female academics, values collaborative storytelling and showcases what matters to women in the academy.
