  1. CADAD Requirements and Reporting

 The project team will report briefly on the progress of the project at the October meeting of CADAD at Flinders University.

  • At the conclusion of the project, the team will be asked to provide an update report at the next scheduled CADAD meeting.
  • A paper will need to be prepared to be published on the CADAD website about the project, process and outcomes of your investigation.
  • A project-related publication in refereed journals is strongly encouraged. We ask that all publications and presentations related to the project acknowledge CADAD’s support of this project.

These requirements will ensure a contribution to the scholarship of academic development and an increased profile for CADAD as a contributor to this goal.
