Australia / Professor / Monash University
Professor Alan Reid works at the Faculty of Education, Monash University.
Alan has worked for over 25 years in a range of environmental and sustainability education (ESE) research projects and networks, locally and internationally. His doctorate was completed in 1998, at University of Bath’s Centre for Research in Education and the Environment, where he worked until 2012. His key activities include editing what has become the field’s leading journal, Environmental Education Research, and supporting the international work of the Global Environmental Education Partnership and eePRO group on research and evaluation for the North American Association for Environmental Education.
Alan's research interests focus on educators’ thinking and practice in ESE, and traditions, capacities and issues in related theory, research and policy. Recent publications address various aspects of research, policy and practice development activities that address the climate emergency through education, education in relation to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, e.g. Mission 4.7, and how educators address scientists’ warnings about the environmental crisis in a wide range of settings and initiatives.
Alan is based in the School of Curriculum, Teaching and Inclusive Education. He is an Affiliate of Monash’s interdisciplinary Sustainable Development Institute. Follow #eerjournal, and find out more at:
