Partnerships

The AIRS Coordination team works closely with the Research Student Centre (RSC) to support research students by:

  1. collaborating to develop seamless administrative procedures as they relate to IFN001
  2. communicating to ensure students' progress is effective, efficient and supported
  3. ensuring students and staff are kept up to date with changes in the research and publishing landscape, data management, legislation, and research integrity.

Research Student Training (via RSC) will now offer graduate research training under the Graduate Research Education & Development title and this will be adopted into new training offerings and course designs.

For both the MPhil and PhD, optional learning and educational offerings will now be grouped into 3 pathways (Advance, Lead and Engage) to allow students to easily identify skills, and opportunities within these resources and to assist faculties and training providers in aligning their resources with key areas of skills development. Students will undertake a Skills Audit to assist in determining their skills requirements and opportunities for engagement in the pathways. All HDR students are now mandated to complete Research Integrity Online and IFN001.
Advance - skills to assist in the contextualisation, analysis and advancement of research. Lead - skills towards the leadership of projects, team and career paths. Engage - skills to engage with end-users, industry, collaborators and innovation.

The partnerships between the AIRS team, the Research Support team, Office of Research Ethics and Integrity (OREI), Faculty Research Administration Officers (FRAO's) and HDR supervisors are essential to ensure the QUT Real World Learning 2020 Vision becomes a reality.
