Members, alumni, research partners and projects
The QTU has a proud history of partnering with education researchers who are current members of the QTU or QTU alumni now contributing to the field of educational research in tertiary education. We are also proud to work in solidarity with national and international researchers whose work aligns with the values of the QTU.
Members, alumni and research partners
Here’s a list of some of the Australian Research Council (ARC) linkage projects that the QTU has supported.
In 2019, the QTU Executive endorsed an ARC partnership with the New South Wales Teachers’ Federation and researchers from Queensland University of Technology, University of Queensland, University of New South Wales, and University of Sydney. The project will investigate measurements of teacher workload and work intensification, and strategies to deal with workload, including the use of digital tools.
In 2017, the QTU partnered with Queensland University of Technology researchers, the Independent Education Union, and other stakeholders to investigate the perspectives of cyberbullying among education department officials, parent representatives, secondary school staff and students, and to understand existing school response strategies to incidences of cyberbullying.
Rethinking the literacy capabilities of pre-service primary school teachers to meet professional expectations for the 21st Century
In the years 2013-2015, the QTU partnered with researchers from University of Queensland, Queensland University of Technology, University of Sydney, Wollongong University, and Deakin University to investigate how pre-service primary teachers demonstrate their literacy capabilities in dealing with evolving forms of texts and literacy practices.
URLearning/digital learning and print literacy: a design experiment for the reform of low-socioeconomic, culturally diverse schools/Waterford West literacy project
In the years 2009-2012, the QTU partnered with Queensland University of Technology researchers, in an ARC project to design and implement models for the use of digital media and technologies in a low socio-economic, suburban primary school with a diverse student population (including Indigenous students).
In 2011, the QTU partnered with Queensland University of Technology researchers, the Queensland Studies Authority (as it was known then), and other stakeholders to investigate teachers’ reported use of the official curriculum documents as they related to teacher experience and training, teaching contexts, and systemic support provisions.
