|Subject Overview:||This subject builds on ‘Indigenous Research’ (MULT90022), the core subject in the Professional Certificate in Indigenous Research, successful completion of which is a prerequisite for entry to this subject. This subject is offered in 2012 as a week-long on-campus, intensive Winter School in July. |
It is expected that participants will be near completion of, or have recently completed, their Research Higher Degree (RHD, and that they are now in a position to develop leadership skills and capacity in, or involving, research. In this subject, Indigenous research is defined as research carried out - in any discipline area - by students who are of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent. It may also include research by RHD students (of any background) whose research is on Indigenous topics. A quota, and selection criteria, will apply.
The curriculum is underpinned by Indigenous perspectives. Participants will develop leadership skills relevant to academic contexts such as research supervision; research grants and project management; and the mentoring of junior researchers, especially Indigenous. They will also develop skills – individually and collaboratively - in applying research findings and/or an evidence base to issues arising in professional, community and industry contexts.
Assessment includes an individual verbal presentation; a short group project; and a longer individual research project tailored to the participant’s work context and career.
