The AAP has supported the following projects:

 Forward Thinking - Learning and Teaching Philosophy in Australian Universities (2010)


The project records the state of tertiary teaching of philosophy in Australia and provides benchmarking data on philosophy at the following levels: teaching academics, the structure and composition of the philosophy major, and the teaching of philosophy from first year or "service" units/subjects, through the Honours year and into postgraduate study.


 Improving the Participation of Women in the Philosophy Profession (2008)

 


The Project identifies the key stages in women’s education or careers in those cases where they either leave Philosophy or stall in their careers, in order to frame future strategies for enhancing women’s participation in all levels of academic Philosophy.
