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.
