Join the dots: Seeing relationships in a sea of digital piracy court cases

This project explores how the Australian Copyright Law 1968 applies to digital piracy. It demonstrates how prominent civil court cases cite other copyright and non-copyright cases and set precedence when interpreting copyright infringement in the Australian court system. The network analysis also shows that there is a reliance on judgements from other countries in the Australian court, such as the UK ad US.

The contents of the website will support the delivery of online training and will connect the Spanish speaking community of Occupational therapists with the global community within the discipline.

Using digital media to engage research audiences with visual and textual data in interactive and meaningful ways

This project uses online digital media to present visual and textual data in ways that allow audiences to interact with and relate to the research data upfront. The data is drawn from a research project with a school for boys who have been marginalised from mainstream schooling due to non-conforming behaviours. The boys took photos of things and places that matters to their sense of belonging in school and talked with Maria about why they chose particular images. In the presentation Maria will discuss the drivers and rationale behind the project, as well as reflect on the steps involved, and skills gained, through the process of developing the project.
