Conference Best Paper Award
During the Conference the 'Best Paper' Award will be announced and the authors of the winning paper will be recognised with the awarding of an official certificate.
Full refereed papers were considered and needed to be either empirical studies or theoretical reviews. These papers provided a detailed description of appropriate literature, methodologies, and analytical methods, demonstrating a thorough and rigourous analysis of current issues in work-integrated learning, leading to well-argued conclusions.
All papers underwent a double blind peer review process and an additional review process for best paper using the following criteria
Alignment with a conference sub-theme
Originality of the research
Quality / rigour (e.g. research method and/or literature review)
Contribution to the scholarship of co-operative education and WIL
Overall innovation and creativity (i.e. of ideas, method/design)
There will also be an award for 'Best Poster'.
