This issue of Queensland Researcher is devoted to recording the outstanding successes of the recent Research Forum conducted by the Institute. Those of you who were able to attend will appreciate the very positive outcomes from the evening, resulting both from the efforts of the Institute Executive in planning and running the Forum and the tremendous response of the educational research community in supporting the Forum. Ted Hobbs, who carried major responsibility for the conceptualisation and organisation of the Forum presents his reflections on the evening as a scene setter for this special 'Forum Issue'.
While the abstracts of the presentations were available to those attending the Forum, the Editorial Panel believes that those Institute members unable to attend the evening and other Queensland Researcher readers will welcome the opportunity to become familiar with some of the current research and evaluation activities underway in our 'local' educational community. The nature and range of these activities is significant. Further, they should be interesting and enlightening to fellow researchers given that one of the positive outcomes of the evening was the valuable networking which took place among researchers. It is anticipated that publication of the abstracts in this issue of Queensland Researcher will further enhance that networking.
