Early Childhood Australia (ECA) is pleased to announce the 2021 AJEC Research Symposium, Complexity and change: Contemporary research in early childhood, will convene virtually on 11–12 February 2021.

We invite early childhood practitioners, researchers, leaders, academics and students to exchange ideas, innovative research methodologies and findings. The symposium will also discuss the latest research and pedagogical practice from the longest-running and most highly regarded academic journal produced by ECA, the Australasian Journal of Early Childhood (AJEC).

The 2021 AJEC Research Symposium will include:

  • keynote presentations based on the theme of Complexity and change: Contemporary research in early childhood
  • panel discussions providing themed provocations for researchers and interested stakeholders
  • roundtable discussions—sharing and debating research evidence, theoretical perspectives and methods
  • two new presentation formats, namely Symposium presentations and Provocations.

We welcome students, academics, researchers and practitioners at all levels from around the world to participate and come together to share cutting-edge knowledge and forge research networks in Australasia and beyond.
