Professional Voice

Published twice a year, AEU Victoria's Professional Voice journal aims to stimulate debate on contemporary professional and curriculum issues.

Professional Voice is free in hard copy for AEU members - email Marlene McLean to subscribe.

The theme of the Summer 2017 issue of Professional Voice, 'What works (and what doesn't)' is an examination for the evidence on the theory and practice that is working - or not working - in school and early childhood education.

In an age of ideologically driven policy and ‘alternative facts’, our articles are sourced from authors due to their research expertise and the depth and quality of their work in these areas.

The articles cover pedagogical dos and don’ts, catering for the needs of students with learning difficulties, the case for two years of preschool education, the value of homework and the funding of education.
