Reflection on co-authorship and presentation at InternationalEd

Activity: Scholarly activities in Learning and Teaching reflectionProfessional and scholarly communities reflection


The presentation for InternationalEd is co-authored by myself and two external lecturers. It is the first time in many years that I have co-authored, and I feel that this experience has been extremely beneficial to myself and to my peers. We have identified an area that could be developed for education research once I complete my current research goals.

We will be submitting the journal article related to the presentation shortly, and are already invited to speak at another conference later this year.

So this will lead to future presentations, writing, and publication opportunities.

It has also encouraged me to to take up additional organisational memberships, with the Asian Studies Association of Australia, and the Japan Studies Association of Australia, and we have a conference presentation to ASAA later this year.

So while i saw the InternationalEd as an opportunity to co-author a paper on lived experiences of DFAT travel, I had not expected it to lead to a potential future research focus that has the potential to impact policy and education pedagogy for international post-covid study. The work is ongoing and I anticipate at least a portion of my time through to late 2022 will be spent on scholarship activities in this collaborative venture
