Practitioner Research Program 2020

Program Outcomes

The Practitioner Research Program will build your research capacity and enable you to:

  • robustly provide evidence for decisions of practice through research
  • develop a set of transferable research skills to continue to answer questions of practice
  • create a high standard dissemination product to allow sharing of research findings. 

You can choose to prepare a written article for submission to a relevant journal. Please contact QELi for further information, as an additional cost will be incurred.

Program Facilitators

The Practitioner Research Program will be facilitated by Dr Annette Hilton and Dr Geoff Hilton. For the past ten years, Annette and Geoff have worked together with a focus on practitioner research and its benefits to educators at all career stages in a range of contexts. They have published widely through journal articles, book chapters, and books and their most recent book, Learning to Research – Researching to Learn: An Educator’s Guide, is due for publication in 2020 by Cambridge University Press. Annette and Geoff have presented at many conferences around the world and have conducted teacher workshops in Australia, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. They believe passionately in the potential of practitioner research to promote educators’ professional growth and to impact positively on the schools in which these educators work.

Annette Hilton was a secondary school teacher and head of department for 20 years. She completed a PhD and postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Queensland before appointment as an Associate Professor of Science Education at the Danish School of Education, Aarhus University, Copenhagen and Associate Professor of Research Leadership at the University of Technology Sydney.

Geoff Hilton was a primary school teacher for many years before completing his PhD and moving to university lecturing and researching.
