Dr Nagabhushan's Psychology Award

It is with great pride that MacKillop congratulates SOSE teacher Dr Prathiba Nagabhushan for receiving the award of Best Research Paper at the 4th Annual International Conference on Cognitive and Behavioural Psychology.

The conference, held in early February in Singapore, brought together some of the leading authorities on cognitive and behavioural science to present and discuss the most innovative approaches in psychology, research, scientific theory, technology, and business.

Dr Nagabhushan presented her paper, entitled 'Academic Motivation and Engagement: Its Nature and Development In the Final Years of Secondary Education', which later received the award for Best Research Paper at the conference.

The abstract of her paper can be viewed here.

It has been a busy time for Dr Nagabhushan, whose dedication to the field of psychology led to the completion of her PhD at the ANU last year.

Dr Nagabhushan's efforts underpin the commitment MacKillop has to the formation of an outstanding faculty of men and women who lead teaching and learning. Congratulations, Prathiba!
