They are available to University of Adelaide staff only and require a valid UoA login. The TAGC would like to thank the grant winners for this contribution to the grant application process.

ALTC Competitive Grants

John Willison, Centre for Learning and Professional Development
Making research skill development explicit in coursework: Four universities’ adaptation of a model to numerous disciplines

The project has at its base the Research Skill Development (RSD) Framework, a conceptual tool designed to sysematise the diagnosis of entry-level students’ research skills and the planning of learning activities to develop those skills. It is also designed to promote teachers' understanding of how students develop research skills and to guide interpretation of both potential and realised student research skill development. The proposed project utilises the RSD framework to explicitly, coherently and efficiently develop student research skill in the context of regular coursework in numerous disciplines.

Maree O'Keefe, Faculty of Health Sciences
Using TMS to identify and build leadership for quality learning in clinical health care teams

The purpose of the project is to explore the utility of Team Management Systems (TMS) to identify and build leadership capacity within health service clinical teams in order to enhance the experiential learning outcomes that are the desired consequence of student placement in these community services. O'Keefe M, Stupans I, Saunders L, McAllister S, Burgess J, LeCouteur A, Miller J. Lead Institution University of Adelaide.
