ECR Connect invites all Early Career Researchers (ECRs) to be part of a collaborative research project in 2017-2018 titled: Integrating local wisdoms/theories into educational research in Oceania.  This program aims to establish an academic alliance of ECRs to investigate transOceania educational issues through examining and incorporating local wisdom and theories. It also helps us to de-centre ourselves from an obsession with the West and Western knowledge, culture, theories and epistemologies.


Please contact the project conveners if you are interested participating in this initiative
