Engaging parents in their child’s education journey – and the powerful impact this can have on student achievement levels and wellbeing - is not a new concept in education circles. The findings from this report significantly add to the existing body of research around parent engagement and provide rich examples of effective parent engagement strategies and approaches at the classroom level.
This project was jointly funded by Independent Schools Queensland and Queensland Independent Schools Parents Network in partnership with Griffith University.
Profiles from EPIC
The Engaging Parents in Inquiry Curriculum (EPIC) research report was born out of the need for rich examples of effective parent engagement strategies and approaches at a classroom level.
Griffith University researchers Dr Linda Willis and Prof Beryl Exley worked with school leaders, teachers, parents and students from six Queensland independent schools to develop a suite of resources.
