Research Fellow, Inclusive Education
Dr George Myconos joined the Brotherhood of St Laurence in 2009.
He is currently exploring the extent to which Australia’s education systems – with particular emphasis on flexible learning options and vocational training providers – assist disadvantaged young people.
This follows earlier research into the role of intercultural dialogue in secondary schools.
Broadly, his role in the Inclusive Education team is to explore innovation in engagement strategies for disadvantaged young learners wherever they are situated.
His PhD (2004) focused on the ways in which labour movements have been globalised and on alternative conceptions of globalisation.
- Access and equity in education
- Social inclusion: agency and capacity building
- Intercultural dialogue
- Theories of globalisation
- Labour relations
