2020 Australian Awards for University Teaching

Career Achievement Award (granted posthumously)

Professor Tracey Bretag - UniSA Business School
Tracey believed passionately in Academic Integrity. She was a leader in her field and throughout her career she worked tirelessly to raise awareness of this issue. Tracey’s work identified the extent of contract cheating and informed national laws to combat this practice. For most of her academic career, Tracey taught at the UniSA Business School where she received a number of awards for her teaching. Sadly she passed away in October. She’s remembered as a true guiding light for our academic community - Professor Deborah Terry AO, Universities Australia Chair.
