This page links to refereed papers accepted in accordance with [Review procedure], in one of the categories
  1. Research - academic research papers with clear strengths "... in the creation of new knowledge and/or the use of existing knowledge in a new and creative way so as to generate new concepts, methodologies and understandings". Accepted papers are eligible for the ARC research category "Conference publications" as detailed under [ERA 2012 Submission Guidelines], Section Conference Publications - Full Paper Refereed.

  2. Professional practice - academic papers with clear strengths in creativity, leadership and excellence in professional practice, demonstrated in teaching, staff development, program or institutional development, educational media or services developments, or learning skills services.
