University research projects to study playing and learning in nature in early childhood education, post-secondary transitions, and teacher mentoring will share in close to $1 million of Queensland education grants.

Education Minister Grace Grace today announced 12 successful projects to receive Education Horizon grants for high-quality early childhood and school education research.

“The Palaszczuk Governments wants to give Queensland kids a great start to their lives by providing them with the best possible education,” Ms Grace said.

“The Education Horizon grants scheme supports research which opens up new horizons for best practice in early childhood and school education.

“The ultimate aim is to improve teaching and learning outcomes for Queensland children and students.

“I congratulate the 12 successful applicants who have received funding from five top Queensland universities.

“The applications received this year were of a particularly high standard and the successful projects will receive funding for research spanning up to two years.

“Some projects focus on areas such as teaching diverse learners and factors affecting long-term achievement of students with autism spectrum disorder.

“Others focus on regulatory practice in early childhood education and care, and the impact of illness on educational outcomes.”

Applicants were assessed against specified criteria, including eight priority research areas identified by the Department of Education, and winners were selected by a panel of experts including an external academic advisor.

Ms Grace said the Queensland Government was committed to leading the way in supporting educational research.

“Queensland is fortunate to have such an excellent research grant scheme to help support our focus on delivering a world-class education system,” she said.
