Student Best Paper Awards

For each conference the RWL International Advisory Committee carries out blind review of papers authored or lead co-authored by students for the purposes of recognizing the best student papers based on the quality and originality of the research.

Studies in Continuing Education offers a prize for best student paper, judged by the International Committee of the Researching Work and Learning Conference. It is the equivalent of $AUD500 provided in the currency of the prize winner.

With the generous support of the journal of Studies of Continuing Education and Professor David Boud, at the RWL12-Toronto Conference (2022) the following outstanding student scholarship was recognized.
