20 Jul 2020
Dr Aspa Baroutsis is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Griffith Institute for Educational Research. Her research is located across social and cultural studies, social geography, school architecture, and education sociology. Her research interests within these fields include: education and the media, with a focus on portrayals of teachers, teaching, and schools across traditional print and social media; learning engagement and student voice across mainstream and alternative school settings; and school learning spaces that support student belonging and participation. Her research-focused approach continues through her current postdoctoral award at Griffith University and her recent three-year Australian Research Council grant (LP190100398). She places emphasis on equity in education and is an advocate of child rights, particularly for those children and young people from under-represented communities. Her research aims to support opportunities for participatory school experiences for children and young people, and their teachers, within the context of a wider community where each is valued and respected.
