Intensive short courses
The centre’s education team works with leaders of the research project nodes to develop their research into opportunities for:
- evidence-based short courses, seminars and workshops
- non-award education activities, such as intensive seminars leveraged off an existing program/unit.
- identifying such opportunities as part of the expression of interest process for project nodes
- marketing and managing the implementation of project node educational activities, including robust evaluation to ensure continuous improvement of the model.
The short course model provides an opportunity to test the market for the development of award courses under broader research themes.
CURRENT WORKSHOPS & COURSES
Bringing twins and researchers together for vital health research that benefits everyone
Twins can help researchers from all disciplines disentangle the roles of the environment on health and disease – while controlling for genes. The program is specifically designed for all researchers and students interested in learning about twin research, or for those who are about to start conducting twin research.

For too long our traditional approaches to nutrition in Australia have failed to deliver the desired outcomes. Two thirds of us are obese or overweight. Many are on fad diets that don’t work and might even be harmful, and others try unsuccessfully to follow official dietary guidelines. Why is it so hard?
This workshop will present a new approach to nutrition which will explain why we find it so hard to follow nutritional advice in modern food environments that work against our biology. Armed with a new understanding of our biology, we will combine this with the psychology to deliver approaches for nutritional behaviour change.
