Glenn C Savage, The University of Western Australia

In this seminar, Glenn Savage will explore the various challenges, possibilities and frustrations facing early career researchers as they seek to navigate the complex terrain of research funding in Australia and beyond. Based on his journey from being a postgraduate student through to receiving an Australian Research Council ‘Discovery Early Career Researcher Award’ (DECRA), Dr Savage will reflect on the highs and lows of grant writing, the challenge of crafting a coherent and strategic research agenda, tips for building a publication portfolio amidst heavy teaching and administrative workloads, and the importance of being proactive in seeking funding and other research opportunities.

Glenn C. Savage is a senior lecturer in education policy and sociology, and an ARC DECRA Fellow, at the University of Western Australia. He is a Senior Honorary Fellow in the Melbourne Graduate School of Education at the University of Melbourne. His research focuses on education policy, politics and governance at national and global levels. Dr. Savage has published widely in leading journals and maintains a strong media profile and links with senior policy makers. He currently holds an Australian Research Council ‘Discovery Early Career Researcher Award’ (DECRA) titled ‘National schooling reform and the reshaping of Australian federalism’, which examines how national schooling reforms in curriculum, pedagogy and assessment are reshaping the role of Australian governments in education policy.
