John Guenther is currently the Research Leader - Education and Training with Batchelor Institute, based in Darwin, NT. John Guenther is focused on building an evidence base for policy and practice, mainly in fields related to education and training, particularly as they intersect with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Research is not just about finding out new and interesting information. It is also about applying it to the lived experiences of people. It is about challenging assumptions and dispelling myths. It should be useful and helpful, not just to those who fund it and do it, but to those who are involved in the context of the research. To that end, John is committed to building research capacity through supervision, collaborative research projects and through good professional and ethical practice. John has worked as a researcher and evaluator in remote Australian contexts—particularly the Northern Territory—for the last 13 years on issues related to education, training, families and children, justice, child protection and domestic violence. He has also worked as an adult learning practitioner in community education, vocational education and higher education sectors.
