Intensive short courses


The centre’s education team will work 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.

This will include:

  • 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 will provide an opportunity to test the market for the development of award courses under broader research themes.
