  • Mentoring of junior researchers, especially those from an Indigenous background
  • Applying research findings and/or an evidence base to issues arising in professional, community and industry contexts.
Advanced standing

If successful, the advanced standing will be equivalent to 25 credit points (in lieu of the MULT90022 Indigenous Research subject/Professional Certificate in Indigenous Research).

Teaching method

The course is taught as an intensive program utilising lectures, seminars, and group activities. Assessment tasks include a verbal presentation and group project during the intensive and a longer individual research project tailored to participants' work context and career. Please note that, due to the latter's time commitment, we do not recommend participation in this course for those who are just about to submit their theses.
