    Research Skill Development Framework


    The RSD framework has been instrumental in helping to align the development of your academic skills with your clinical competencies to promote students to become evidence based, holistic practitioners. Dental & Health Science IIOH will  be using the RSD framework to inform curriculum design, plan student activities, provide a vehicle for evaluation and drive student assessment. We are looking for students to have skills developed at level 3 by the completion of this course.


    One of the key advantages of using the RSD framework is that it challenges you to continue to develop your own ‘curiosity’ as a health practitioner. It maps out the skills required to be able to provide the level of patient care that the public demands in Australia today. Whether you are find yourself in health care administration, management, providing clinical services or researching and analytics, the RSD paves the way for you to identify certain skills required for you to reach your personal goals. If you weren’t familiar with it enough in first year, you will have a good opportunity to review it again in BOH 2.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.

  • Student Support
  • Policies & Guidelines
  • Fraud Awareness

    Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
