The Challenge Media Release – 3 September 2015 Premier and Minister for the Arts The Honourable Annastacia Palaszczuk Small business and universities encouraged to join forces to innovate … What about TAFE ?
The Challenge There is no doubt that TAFE practitioners undertake research in various ways (action research, qualitative research, research and development) and for various reasons (teaching innovation, partnering with industry, professional development, technological advances) but they do not always name it for what it is; and as they do not often write up their research in academic papers, they do not claim their research in the same way as their Higher Education counterparts.
