Professor Tanya Ovenden-Hope has applied ten years of research with Dr Rowena Passy on coastal and rural schools, and research on teacher retention, to conceptualise ‘educational isolation’.
She will discuss the complexity in defining educational isolation beyond geographical remoteness, recognising the contextual situation of the school ‘place’, including socioeconomic and cultural opportunities in the community. She will also explore how educationally isolated schools can have limited access to educational resources, such as a high-quality teaching workforce, externally funded education grants and continuing professional development.
