Staff ARC successes
The School of Education was successful in four ARC (Australian Research Council) grants in the current round - two Discovery grants and two Linkage grants.
This is an exceptional result and provides tangible evidence of the quality work being done in the School. A special thanks must go to Professor Jill Blackmore who facilitated the collaborative review process which provided rigorous feedback and guidance to all applicants.
