Congratulations to Dr Sue Reynolds, winner of the DREaM conference international travel bursary.
Sue is Senior Lecturer in Information Management and Program Director in the School of Business IT and Logistics at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia.
Sue will be participating at the conference on the last day of a two week European summer tour. During this she will be pursuing activities associated with her position as a Senior Lecturer in Information Management at RMIT University.
Sue is looking forward to the DREaM conference because it will give her the opportunity to hear what is happening in LIS research in the UK. Just before her European tour she will attending a similar conference in Australia: Research Applications in Information and Library Studies 8, at the University of South Australia, Adelaide on 25th June 2012. These two research-focused events will act as bookends to other professional activities that Sue will be involved in while in Europe, all of which will inform her knowledge and understanding of the most recent research in the LIS discipline and enable her in turn to share this with students and academic peers in Australia. Attendance at both research events will provide a human link between them and extend the shared aims of each (that is, to bring together a network of researchers to foster informed and innovative research practice) beyond the borders of the UK and Australia.
Sue hopes that being part of the DREaM conference might also facilitate collaborative research activities between international researchers from the UK and Australia, and perhaps beyond.
