Research interests
Dr Margaret Baguley is an associate professor in arts education, curriculum and pedagogy at the University of Southern Queensland. Her contribution to quality learning, teaching and research has been recognised through a series of awards including a USQ School-Specific Publication Excellence Award - Journal Article (Third place, 2015 & 2016), USQ Publication Excellence Award - Authored Book (2015, Third place), Vice Chancellor's Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning (2014, USQ), Team Commendation Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning (2013, USQ), Faculty Excellence in Research (Early Career) Award (2012, USQ), a Faculty Teaching Excellence Award (2010, USQ) the Australian Learning and Teaching Council's National Citation for Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning (2008, UTAS); a Vice-Chancellor's Teaching Excellence Award (2007, UTAS); Teaching Merit Certificates (2008, 2007, 2004, UTAS) and a Mentoring Award (2005, UTAS). She has an extensive teaching background across all facets of education, in addition to maintaining her arts practice. An interest in collaborative practice and creativity underpins her teaching. Dr Baguleys research work is concerned with the complexities of the collaborative process which she examined in her PhD entitled Partnership or Perish? A study of artistic collaborations. This research has examined the role of leadership, authorship, ego and support in the arts sector.

Dr Baguley is also a practising artist who has had 10 solo exhibitions and 47 group exhibitions with forty one of these being invitational. She has received a number of significant awards throughout her career including the Australia Council’s New Media Residency to Banff, Canada, the Martin Hanson Memorial Art award and the National Dame Mary Durack Outback Award. Her work is held in a number of collections including the Bundanon Trust Art Collection, the Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery and the Wesley Hospital Art Collection. She has undertaken residencies at Arthur Boyd’s Bundanon Property, the Australian Tapestry Workshop and Manning Clark House. Dr Baguley has been a recipient of grants from the Ian Potter Foundation, Craft Queensland, Pat Corrigan, Arts Queensland and her work has been selected to tour regional Queensland through the Queensland Arts Council.

During 2015 Dr Baguley was awarded a Australian Government ANZAC Centenary Arts and Culture Public Fund Grant with Dr Martin Kerby from St Joseph's Nudgee College in Brisbane. The grant supported a sound and light show using the heritage listed buildings of the school to 'reveal' the stories of past students and their war time experience. Dr Baguley was also one of the lead artists on a 2014 Queensland ANZAC Centenary Grant and was responsible for the design and creation of a six panel textile artwork commemorating the service of past students from St Joseph's Nudgee College. The outcomes of both grants were exhibited at the college on October 24, 2015. Dr Baguley and Dr Kerby have recently been awarded a 2017 Queensland Anzac Centenary Spirit of Service Grant and are currently working on the outcomes to be showcased in October.

Dr Baguley is the previous Chair of the Conference Standing Committee for AARE (2014 - 2016) and has recently convened the 2016 AARE Conference at the MCG in Melbourne, Victoria. She is an elected World Councillor for the International Society for Education through Art (InSEA) representing the South East Asia Pacific region (2014 - 2017). Dr Baguley was one of the organising committee for the World Alliance for Arts Education (WAAE) Global Summit held at Griffith University from the 26 - 28 Nov, 2014. She has recently co-edited a special theme journal issue for "Australian Art Education" (2016) with Dr Kerby and "The Palgrave International Handbook of Global Arts Education with Dr Georgina Barton" (2017) drawing from presentations at the WAAE Summit.
