The best paper presented at the recent national HERDSA 2012 conference was won by previous CUPP Acting Director Anne Langworthy and our researcher, Dr Susan Johns.
Their paper was titled: Why is it important for Higher education to connect with the VET sector? This prestigious award demonstrates the high quality of research coming from CUPP. The award of AUD$1000 is open to all papers accepted for presentation as a full refereed paper. Papers to be considered for this award were nominated by reviewers which the HERDSA executive judged.
