HERDSA sadly recognises the loss of Tracey as a valued colleague and academic who made a significant contribution to the higher education to the sector through her work on academic integrity in particular. Tracey was an active author and reviewer for the HERD journal, writing for the HERDSA Review of Higher Education, a presenter at HERDSA conferences and an active and valued contributor to the HERDSA community.

Dr Tracey Bretag was Professor (Higher Education) in the School of Management at the University of South Australia Business School. Her research focused on higher education policy and practice, with an emphasis on academic integrity. She was the Director of the UniSA Business School Office for Academic Integrity for 4 years. She was the founding Editor of the International Journal for Educational Integrity, and Editor-in-Chief of the Handbook of Academic Integrity (2016). Professor Bretag received a number of awards and grants throughout her career cut short too soon.

Types of sessions include: Shortened peer reviewed papers, 20x20 session, intensive and in depth workshops, as well as digitally interactive poster sessions and facilitated conversations.
