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 Spring 2017 edition of Professional Voice has the general theme of teacher professional learning. Michael Fullan, Mary Kennedy and Stephen Dinham relate research about professional learning to student achievement gains, school improvement and effective leadership.

More broadly, the AEU sees the journal as a whole as a source of ongoing professional learning for teachers and principals through engaging with issues relevant to the profession. In this edition there are articles about inequity in schooling, the role of Aboriginal teachers, neuroscience in the classroom and a project to assist students with complex needs.
