This book showcases a compilation of research partnerships produced by the Federation University Gippsland School of Education. Through this book, readers will gain valuable insights into how education research initiatives can help adapt to an age characterized by massive regional/global economic, environmental, identity, cultural and social shifts. The respective chapters address the universal human and researcher condition in a regional setting, highlighting how individuals and groups are seeking to achieve transformation with their regional, educational research. On the whole, the compilation showcases a specific university in a regional context that is now responding to change by rejuvenating, reinventing, re-envisioning and rethinking its research, its identity and its relationality.
