Early Childhood Australia (ECA) is pleased to announce the 2023 AJEC Research Symposium, Early childhood knowledges, generations and time, will convene virtually on 9–10 February 2023.

We invite early childhood practitioners, researchers, leaders, academics and students to exchange ideas, innovative research methodologies and findings. The symposium will also discuss the latest research and pedagogical practice from the longest-running and most highly regarded academic journal produced by ECA, the Australasian Journal of Early Childhood (AJEC).


The 2023 AJEC Research Symposium will include:


  • keynote presentations based on the theme of Early childhood knowledges, generations and time
  • panel discussions providing themed provocations for researchers and interested stakeholders
  • roundtable discussions—sharing and debating research evidence, theoretical perspectives and methods
  • two additional presentation formats, namely Symposium presentations and Provocations.


This virtual research symposium theme acknowledges and celebrates how knowledges about young children, their families, communities, educators and allied professionals develop over generations and time, creating opportunities for those involved in the education, care and wellbeing of young children to connect with contributions from those of the past in their present and future work within the following streams:


  • Transforming and transitioning
  • Knowing people, places and things
  • Being, living and learning.We welcome early childhood researchers and workforce professionals engaging with young children, their families, communities, educators and allied professionals to participate and come together to share cutting-edge knowledge and forge research networks in Australasia and beyond.
