The NICE Annual Research Symposium (2024)

The NICE annual Research Symposium aims to bring together Christian education scholars from around Australia and overseas to exchange scholarly research, insights and innovations, in order for our Christian education sector to flourish and grow. The 2024 research symposium will be a full-day, in-person event following the International Transforming Education Conference (ITEC), Nova Diem/A New Day, in Perth, WA.

The current education landscape is changing rapidly, presenting new complexities and challenges across education policy and practice, between generations and their changing social imaginaries, and across social and demographic divides. The 2024 Symposium, Educating for Hope in this Cultural Moment, presents an opportunity to consider how scholarship can explore and investigate the realities and challenges of this cultural moment, while attending to the source of our hope as the psalmist does:

Our symposium will bring together scholars and educators who are committed to advancing research on Christian education. We will explore three research areas key to current educational challenges, each through the lens of culture and hope.
