Dawes, Les, Australasian Journal of Engineering Education


This is the first issue for 2008 of the Australasian Journal of Engineering Education (AJEE) in the revised online format. This issue showcases the best papers from our annual conference held in Melbourne in December last year. The conference was a great success, bringing together engineering educators from Australia, New Zealand and all around the world.

As part of the peer review process for the conference, the reviewers were asked to nominate any papers they consider candidates for the conference's Best Paper Award. These candidates were then subjected to a further review process and invited to be submitted for publication here in the AJEE.

This issue comprises the two candidate papers, including the winners of the Best Paper Award, Kurt Patterson's paper "Development for the other 80%: Engineering Hope" and Peter Radcliffe's paper "Plagiarism Prevention: Using automated tools". The papers address a range of issues, illustrating the need for making engineering education relevant to the global community, and looks at the changing face of student motivation and how best to deal with plagiarism issues considering the educational needs of engineers during and after their time at university. The papers each make a valuable contribution that addresses an important need in the engineering education field.

The AJEE will now be published in two issues each year. The first issue will comprise the best papers from the annual AAEE conference, which are then subjected to an additional peer review process to ensure that they meet our journal's standards.
