Event Description

Full Description:
A/Prof Lene Haakstad will present a seminar titled' To Learn from Practice: Evaluation of a community-based exercise intervention during pregnancy'. The presentation will outline findings from a large-scale study which explored individual experiences with participating in an exercise intervention during pregnancy. A/Prof Haakstad is an exercise researcher at the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences (NSSS). Dr Haakstad’s primary research field is women's health, with particular focus on physical activity and health during pregnancy, and the effect of exercise on outcomes for the mother and the foetus. She is currently a visiting fellow at The University of Queensland.

Dr Anna Hogan will present a talk titled 'Dismantling ‘public’ schooling'. In recent years, alternative modes of ‘public’ education have been pursued in a number of countries. These schools involve corporations receiving public funding to run public schools. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has indicated that Australia should trial these types of schools. Supporters of privatised provision of public education argue that it is more cost-effective, provides better learning outcomes and facilitates more innovative teaching and learning. In this paper I focus on the privatisation of public schooling in Canada and England. This analysis shows the tensions that exist between (imagined) community and individualism in contemporary societies and explores how two systems have responded to these challenges.
Dr Anna Hogan is a lecturer at The University of Queensland. Anna’s research focuses on the privatisation and commercialisation of schooling and the effects these have on education policy and practice.
All welcome. No RSVP required.
