Congratulations to Dr. Jennie Bales, a recent PhD graduate of ours, who has won a Beth Southwell Research Award for Outstanding Educational Thesis from 2008! This award is from the NSW Institute for Educational Research and nominations are limited to one per university. Beth Southwell was a well known educator and academic who gave many years of committed service to the NSW Institute for Educational Research. This award perpetuates her memory.
Dr. Bales' thesis, "Supportive Online Learning Environments for Primary Students: Literature Circles in an Education MOO", is attracting a great deal of favourable attention from the educational community. Well done, Jennie!
