This issue of "Queensland Researcher" celebrates two major activities of the Queensland Institute for Educational Research for 1994.
The first, the paper by Professor Glen Evans (University of Queensland), is the text of his 1994 J A Robinson Memorial Lecture presentation delivered in June. Professor Evans, a most distinguished educator and educational researcher, is retiring from the University of Queensland this year. The Institute is very pleased to have been able to count Glen as one of its long serving members and to have him make such an important contribution to its activities this year. The paper, "I Need to Raise my Expectations: Helping Student Teachers to Reflect", looks at the skill development of student teachers and their practical expression in classroom teaching.
The bulk of the issue is dedicated to the abstracts from the highly successful QIER Educational Research Forum held in August. The Forum has become a major event on the educational calendar and was attended by over 100 people, representing a variety of tertiary institutions, education departments and bodies. The abstracts, published in an issue of "Queensland Researcher", have proved popular in previous years by assisting networking of researchers. Readers interested in following up details of particular studies are urged to contact the relevant researcher(s) directly.
Also included with this issue is a paper by Dianne Reardon on the Wiltshire Review of the Queensland School Curriculum and its implications for quality assurance. This is a further addition to the debate regarding the Review and complements the papers published in the previous issue of "Queensland Researcher".
