Education and radicalisation in Indonesia: Impact, engagement and the production of educational research.

Assoc Prof Julie Matthews, Ms Yuli Astiana and Mr M Nurul Ikhson Saleh
(School of Education)

Abstract: Impact and engagement measures are relatively recent additions to the neoliberal audit regime. In general, accountability and productivity metrics provide poor measures of research quality particularly in qualitative research where markers can include: a) worthy topic, (b) rich rigor, (c) sincerity, (d) credibility, (e) resonance, (f) significant contribution, (g) ethics, and (h) meaningful coherence (Tracey 2010). Since there is there no agreement about what constitutes impact and engagement, the addition of these elements to the audit agenda does little to stimulate good quality research in education. Of particular concern is the assumption that educational impacts are immediately identifiable in policy, curriculum, and practice, when in fact they just as likely to have less immediate, less tangible and yet far broader social, political and economic benefits. Equally problematic is the idea that non-government research income is a useful measure of research engagement.

Based on a study of education and radicalisation in Indonesia this paper highlights the problem of subordinating research production to research reception. Internationally, education has come to the fore as a major anti-radicalisation tool, and yet little is known about how it is understood and enacted in educational institutions. Located in two Indonesian schools this paper discusses teachers’ and students’ views of the relationship of education to radicalisation and the role of civics and peace education. Our discussion of research impact and engagement underlines the importance of research production in terms of the development of research relationships, and the generation of new questions and perspectives. We argue that a consideration of research impact and engagement as an intrinsic aspect of research production, rather than as factors of research reception, provides a more sophisticated understanding of the nature of educational research and a more robust means of securing quality in educational research.

An Integrated approach to a Year10 Indigenous perspective: A South Australian focus on “Calypso Summer” in English, Geography with the inclusion of Maths, Science, and Music.

Mr Michael Colbung
Lecturer, School of Education, The University of Adelaide

Abstract: Australian curriculum has struggled for many years with the “finding of place” for Aboriginal and Islander content. The justification for its inclusion into the Australian curriculum sitting alongside the powerhouses of Mathematics and Science has been an area of lengthy dialogue and deliberation. The Australian Curriculum Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) 2008 have recently embarked on the inclusion of an Indigenous perspective through all subjects and units. It will be interesting to see how much is incorporated and how much encouragement is given in the domain of extension work and inclusion of the Indigenous perspective. There is also the possibility and encouragement for classroom teachers to alter the Indigenous perspective to a more comprehensive Aboriginal and Islander Unit of study. Government policy around Australian Institute for Teaching and Schools(ATSIL) and ACARA has sort to be more inclusive of the social make up of Australian society and this has in-turn been marked by the need to learn more and be more inclusive of Australia’s Indigenous history.
