Welcome to the New Voices in Social Work Research blog. The New Voices in Social Work Research blog is an initiative of the Australian and New Zealand Social Work and Welfare Research (ANZSWWER). The aims of the blog are to promote and support Higher Degree Research (HDR) students, (includes PhD, Masters and Honours) and Early Career Researchers (ECR) in the area of social work and human services in Australia and New Zealand. This includes research and scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) and practice-led research. New Voices in Social Work Research also aims to provide an avenue for HDR and ECR researchers to disseminate their research and connect with other researchers in social work and welfare education.
The inaugural Blog curators are Dr Lynelle Watts and Dr David Hodgson, currently Senior Lecturers in Social Work at Edith Cowan University and members of ANZSWWER. Lynelle and David are also early career researchers (ECRs) with a passion for social work research and education. Views expressed are those of named blog contributors, and do not necessarily reflect the views of ANZSWWER or the curators.
