ACU staff member Associate Professor Catherine McLoughlin came across a unique way of showcasing staff research activity while visiting the University of Extremadura in Spain recently.
Catherine, who works in the Faculty of Education and Arts, was visiting the university to attend the Innovative and Creative Education and Teaching International Conference.
During the conference she came across a large ball in the courtyard of the University, on which copies of staff publications are pinned.
This is a way of showcasing staff research activity and members of the public are welcome to browse the collection and can request copies.
“It’s an interesting way to publicise staff publications as well as creating an artwork,” Catherine said.
Catherine’s own work was recognised during the conference, where she was awarded the Certificate of Best Paper, for her paper: Assessing the effectiveness of the flipped classroom approach in a teacher education program: An Australian case study.
