This issue of the Queensland Researcher maintains the tradition of dissemination of research of particular interest to Queensland readers. In this present issue, research reports focus on projects of interest to educators across the P-12 and in-service range. Thesis abstracts reflect the diversity of ongoing research within the local context, spanning from pre-literate children to pre-service teacher education students, from reading acquisition to adults' personal constructs.
'Listening: A Natural Environment' is the text of the 1989 J. A. Robinson Memorial Lecture, an annual highlight of the QIER program. This year the lecture was presented by Professor Diana Davis. Professor Davis took up the Chair in Language Arts Studies at James Cook University of North Queensland at the end of 1988 and, as the text indicates, already is making a major contribution to the Queensland educational scene. The topic, listening, has received little research attention to date and the Memorial lecture presents powerful arguments for the need for further research activity in this area.
