Abstract

More than a conference proceedings, this e-collection
is framed by prefatory comments on the critical importance
of educational attainment and aspiration by the
Governor of Tasmania, the Tasmanian Minister for
Education and Training, and the Patron of the Peter
Underwood Centre for Educational Attainment. Its
purpose is introduced by the University of Tasmania’s
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Students and Education) and
Pro Vice-Chancellor (Students). The balance of the work
comprises papers originally presented at the inaugural
Education Transforms Symposium held in Hobart, Tasmania,
over 14–16 July 2015. The work also captures
reflections by several session chairs, panellists, and
participants—all of whom share their views about how
the symposium transformed their own thinking. These
varied contributions are augmented by short commentaries
from the coordinators of Children’s University
Tasmania and Bigger Things, two of the Centre’s key
aspiration programs. A final section by the Centre’s
Interim Director both closes the work and opens up a
space for further and ongoing conversations about educational
attainment and lifelong aspirations to learn.
