Top marks for educator

Mark Fielding was one of two West Australians to be awarded a New Voice scholarship from the Australian Council for Educational Leaders, winning the educational leadership research scholarship.

As the school�s global programs director, Dr Fielding was recognised for his research on the challenges of globalisation on school education.

�Given that globalisation is destined to influence schools in one form or another in the future, I believe that educational leaders and school communities need to be fully aware so they can position their schools accordingly,� he said.

As part of the scholarship, Dr Fielding can attend the 2015 ACEL National Conference in Sydney, have his work published in the council�s journal and will receive $500.

There were 20 scholarships awarded nationally across the categories of school leadership, educational research leadership and indigenous educational leadership.
