English for a New Millennium

Leading change

Cal Durrant, Karen Starr

English for a New Millennium
This book came about as a result of The Australian Government Summer School for Teachers program that was announced as part of the 2007-08 Budget Package: Realising Our Potential. The Summer School brought together over 200 academics, teachers and education department officials for a smorgasbord of keynote presentations, workshops and social events that is unlikely to be repeated in this country.

English for a New Millennium gives every English teacher an opportunity to share in the richness of that experience. It includes contributions from Catherine Beavis, Ray Misson, Elizabeth Webby, Gabriel Matters and Clare Bradford.

Cal Durrant is Chair of Initial Teacher Education and teaches English Curriculum and Media Education at Murdoch University. His research comprises a range of publications and media productions, including a co-edited text in 2001 on ICTs and English with Catherine Beavis titled P(ICT)ures of English: Teachers, learners and technology. He is on the Executive Council of the Australian Association for the Teaching of English and also serves on the Editorial Board of English in Australia.

Professor Karen Starr is the Foundation Chair, School Development and Leadership and Director of the Centre for Educational Leadership and Renewal at Deakin University. Her research interests lie in educational leadership, change, school renewal, governance, educational policy, rural education and equity. Karen commenced her career in education as a teacher of English and has found it very rewarding to return to her roots to edit this text with Cal Durrant.
