In light of the challenging times facing the Australian university sector, we recognise that people may have limited funds to attend a face-to-face conference later this year or into 2021. Therefore, CRADLE Conference 2020 will be continuing as an online event. It will still take place from 19 to 20 October 2020.
An enthusiastic audience joined us for our first entirely online CRADLE seminar, as A/Prof. Nick Hopwood (UTS) explored questions and concepts of agency in the context of professional practices. Here, Chad Gladovic (CRADLE PhD researcher into work-integrated assessment) reflects on Nick’s thought-provoking seminar.
