It is usual for PhD candidates to attend an international conference in the final year of their candidature to both present their research findings and connect with other researchers in their field. This year, Education PhD candidate Steven Cohen, both attended and presented his PhD findings at the International Conference on Education, Research and Innovation held in Beijing on Saturday, 6 - Monday, 8 August 2016.
This year’s conference focused upon research in leadership across the education system, from subject leadership to school leaders’ and university policy makers working together to achieve sustained improvement for the benefit of academics and young people the world over. Participants attended from a diverse array of countries including Botswana, USA, Australia and Saudi Arabia.
The conference was fortunate enough to bring three international speakers, including a well received lecture by Professor Ma. Belinda S. Mandigma from the University of Santo Tomas (Manila, Philippines), on how early researchers can best position themselves to become internationally renowned.
There was also a choice of 35 poster, research and roundtable presentations together with plenty of debate and discussion throughout the sessions.
Steve was fortunate enough to win most outstanding presentation with an exposition of his Doctoral thesis, "Decision making amongst postgraduate students choosing to study in Western Australia." We congratulate Steven and wish him all the best for the future together with all other Doctoral candidates throughout the university.
At ECU, we’re committed to research that has strong social, economic, environmental and cultural impact. If you want to make a practical difference to people’s lives, enquire now about a postgraduate research degree.
