AJEC Research Symposium 2018

‘Power, politics and agency in early childhood education’ 
Early Childhood Australia (ECA) is pleased to announce the 2018 AJEC Research Symposium, an interactive event located in Brisbane from 16–17 February 2018, in partnership with the Queensland University of Technology (QUT).

Due to the popularity of this symposium and its importance as one of the main platforms for early childhood practitioners, the AJEC Symposium has grown from being part of the ECA National Conference and to now running across two days as a new stand-alone event. For more information, click here.
