People with a great idea for turning high-quality research into an innovative learning resource are invited to apply for the Beeby Award 2018.

The Beeby Award is a joint initiative by the New Zealand Council for Educational Research and the New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO. The Award is worth $30,000 and the resulting resource may be published by NZCER Press.

Both organisations aspire to a socially just and equitable society, and invite applications for resources that will support this by:

  • supporting active participation in the democratic process
  • connecting indigenous knowledge and science
  • understanding the contribution of cultural diversity.

Applications will be accepted until 5pm, Friday 31 July 2018. See the selection criteria and instructions for applicants for details of how to apply.

The Award, previously called the Beeby Fellowship, is awarded bi-annually. The 2016 holders are developing a mental health education resource, to be released later this year.

Dr Clarence Beeby was the inaugural Director of NZCER, and was Assistant Director-General of UNESCO from 1948-1949.
