Achievements

Winner of best paper at the 2012 HERDSA conference. The paper, co-written with former APP director A/Prof Anne Langworthy, reported findings from research into VET to higher education pathways in Tasmania and provided evidence of the need to strengthen articulation between the two sectors.

General Responsibilities

Susan is employed as the Research Officer, Social Inclusion. Her role is to seek funding, prepare proposals and undertake research activities relating to social inclusion. This includes input into the development of a social inclusion support plan for the university, evaluation of the Diploma of University Studies, research into articulation from vocational education and training (VET) to higher education, and input into the UTAS pathway partnership benchmarking project with three other universities. Susan also undertakes a range of other activities to support the teaching practice of staff in the University Preparation Program and Diploma of University Studies, and to further the development of alternative pathways to university.
