We are pleased to present the CQU Faculty Edited Collection for 2004.

Educational research is important because it informs teaching and learning at every level of modern society. Education now exceeds the definitions placed on it just a decade ago. In its more traditional form, educational research explores the nature of schools, classrooms and individual learning experience. Research is the lifeblood of innovation in teaching and informs policy decisions taken by schools and government and independent jurisdictions. As a result, educational research is interested in every facet of schooling and learning and this collection presents a rich and diverse set of studies.

The underlying issues addressed in this collection are related to the exploration of partnerships between the researcher and the researched, industry, schooling and higher education; initiatives that seek to understand, improve and analyse pedagogy in order to achieve a greater understanding some of the key themes arising for educational researchers in an increasingly futures focused world. We trust that the research discussed stimulates discussion and debate.
