Best Tertiary (Wholly Australian) Teaching and Learning Resource: Highly commended

The Educational Publishing Awards, organised by the Australian Publishers' Association were held last night. The final book category awarded on the night was Best Tertiary (Wholly Australian) Teaching and Learning Resource. The winner was Business Law 9th Edition by Andy Gibson and Douglas Fraser (Pearson). Highly commended was Introduction to Speech, Language and Literacy edited by myself and Jane McCormack (Oxford University Press)! We didn't even know we had been entered or shortlisted! We are thrilled that our work with our chapter authors and editors from OUP has been acknowledged in this way.

Here is the description of the awards from the Educational Publishing Awards website:
The prestigious annual Educational Publishing Awards reward excellence and innovation in the industry. The event offers colleagues and industry professionals the opportunity to network and celebrate achievements. Awards are judged by a panel of peers, and each year teachers and booksellers vote for the coveted Publisher of the Year award. Awards will be presented in the Primary, Secondary, TAFE & Vocational and Tertiary Education categories as well as to the Primary and Secondary Publisher of the Year. ​
