IASYM Australasian Conference: Melbourne

19-21 April, 2018

Speakers: FR Chris Ryan MGL, Ruth Lukabyo, Rowan Lewis and Graham Stanton

The next Australasian Regional conference of the IASYM will be held in Melbourne, Australia, from 19-21 April, 2018.

The conference gathers people involved in children’s, youth and emerging/young adult ministry as teachers, lecturers, researchers or thoughtful practitioners across Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

The conference provides an opportunity to engage with the latest scholarship and research related to Christian ministry among young people as well as a forum for building stronger networks.

The program for 2018 offers three formats for engagement and interaction: research papers, emerging research and research skills workshops:

Research Papers present new research in children’s, youth and emerging/young adult ministry submitted by conference delegates. In each session the presentation will be followed by a prepared response as well as group discussion.
Emerging Research sessions provide an opportunity to share ‘works-in-progress’ and developing thoughts as well as completed ideas not yet established in a formal paper. These sessions provide an opportunity for new or emerging researchers (whether engaged in formal study or as a thoughtful practitioner) to road-test ideas and receive feedback in a constructive environment.
Research Skills Workshops offer professional development opportunities to assist delegates in the craft of research. A workshop session could look at software to aid research and writing, how to develop a PhD proposal, tips for turning research into publications.

Further details can be found on the IASYM website.
