Education and Training
The Equity Research and Innovation Panel’s responsibility is to provide strategic advice on Australian Government funded research (and trials) on student equity in higher education conducted under the National Priorities Pool component of the Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP). The Panel will develop a strategic program of integrated equity research and trials that addresses gaps in knowledge necessary to identify best practice and assess its efficacy into the future. This advice will be provided to the Department of Education and Training, which will brief the Minister for Education and Training. The advice may inform investment of HEPPP National Priorities Pool funds. The Panel’s role is advisory. The Panel consists of people with expertise in higher education equity research or practice who may be drawn upon to provide relevant advice and technical expertise. The Panel is not a representative body. Decision-making responsibility rests with the Minister for Education and Training. Panel members’ roles are to: • provide expert academic and technical advice • bring objective perspectives to bear • take a national approach while being aware of any geographical or institutional differences that impact on equity in higher education. The Equity Research and Innovation Panel will advise the Government on: • a strategic and whole-of-sector approach to equity research in higher education • areas of national strength in equity research and current and future capability and need • opportunities to improve the impact, focus, prioritisation and quality of Australia’s investment in equity research, including advice on national priorities for equity research • matters as requested by the Minister for Education and Training, and/or the Department of Education and Training.
