Publications Working Group
The role of the ACE Publications Working Group is to assist the ACE National Board to ensure ACE is publishing original, ‘cutting-edge’ material on contemporary educational issues, priorities and themes. Ideally, publications papers/articles (electronic and print) will be grounded in the experiences of practising educators from all levels, sectors and contexts within education Australia-wide; informed by current and emerging theories; and concerned with issues of national significance.
This group meets regularly to set themes and discuss ideas for upcoming editions of ACE's main journal Professional Educator, and other publications and communication supporting College events. The group discusses topics for inclusion and identifies potential and specialised authors who may be invited to contribute.
