Biographical details

Valerie Harwood is a Professor of Sociology and Anthropology of Education and an Australian Research Council Future Fellow (2014-2018). Valerie’s research is centred on a social and cultural analysis of participation in educational futures. This work involves learning about collaborative approaches and in-depth fieldwork on educational justice with young people, families and communities.

Current projects

Valerie is involved in a research partnership with AIME the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience.

The Future Fellowship project, with Project Manager Nyssa Murray, led to the creation of Lead My Learning, where constructs and techniques from social marketing were adapted for use in a social and cultural approach to promoting educational futures in early childhood. Lead My Learning focusses on describing the learning activities that parents do, and how these contribute to parental participation in children’s education.

Associations

Valerie is an Honorary Professorial Fellow with the Australian Health Services Research Institute (AHSRI), University of Wollongong where she collaborates with the Caring for Community team led by Professor Kathie Clapham. Projects include research with the Illawarra Koori Men’s Support Group (IKMSG) and with Coomaditchie United Aboriginal Corporation on the Ngaramura Project.
