  • converting a scholarly paper into a piece for the AIIA’s popular Australian Outlook blog;
  • conducting an interview with the researcher and posting it on the AIIA’s YouTube channel and blog;
  • promoting through Twitter;

  1. A summary of the research that has been conducted and its findings;
