Applications for TRAMx Now Open

TRAMx assists researchers from across the University as well as the Melbourne Biomedical Precinct to maximise the impact potential of their research. They provide a range of programs tailored to teach, support and guide researchers along this process, including problem validation and market engagement through to funding strategy and business case generation.

The program is currently recruiting participants for the first digital TRAMx Bootcamps for the year coming up on February 19, March 4, March 18 and March 30.  There is no cost to the individual or faculty for attendance. TRAMx is keen to have the biggest impact possible by empowering as many researchers across all faculties at the University and Biomedical Precinct as possible.

Researchers will:

  • Learn entrepreneurial methodology to think about research differently
  • Connect with supporters/mentors
  • Apply the frameworks to real projects
  • Network with fellow go getter researchers
  • Understand the potential pathways and support networks available to them
  • Walk away with new skills to take back to their research groups

Approaches to dual delivery teaching to support student engagement - Seminar

Date: Tuesday 23 February
Time: 1pm - 2.15pm

Dual-delivery subjects at the University are those that are taught in two modes: blended delivery (online and campus-based) for students who can attend campus, and entirely online delivery for students who cannot attend campus. In this seminar, presenters will provide a brief overview of the main approaches to dual delivery teaching at the University (split cohort and blended synchronous) and outline some research-informed educational principles to guide the design of activities to engage students in these approaches.

Presenters will also offer some practical strategies and examples for lecturers in various disciplinary teaching and learning contexts.
