ACSPRI Programs have earned a high reputation for presenting a practical and applied approach to research methods and data analysis, promoting hands-on learning opportunities, and using highly skilled and experienced instructors from around Australia and overseas.
The ACSPRI calendar includes regular offerings in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra.
Visit their Event Calendar page for upcoming programs, courses and other relevant events. Its most prominent activities are the regular training programs in social research methods and research technology. ACSPRI currently also runs annual programs.
CDU is a member organisation of ACSPRI. When enrolling for a course, both CDU staff members and HDR students will need to register on the ACSPRI website and choose 'Charles Darwin University' as your member organisation from the list. That will apply the member rate to the course(s) that you wish to participate in.
Once registered and logged in, go to the course page that you are after, scroll down to the 'book this course' button and enrol. Both CDU staff members and HDR candidates can get membership discounts, however, they will still need to pay for the course fees.
HDR students will need to contact their college HDR admins if they require college support to enrol in ACSPRI's courses.
For more information about enrolling as a member from CDU please contact ACSPRI.
