GSBL and GBI ECP had a great pleasure to host an Associate Professor Anton Kriz from ANU on May 25. This session was open to all interested RMIT staff and HDR students who were keen to learn about action-based research and its use in practice to put more meaning into research and teaching practices while getting better outcomes.
Anton delivered an insightful presentation on bridging academia and industry through action research and action learning. Anton's expertise is unique in producing high quality research outputs combined with practical outcomes. He published several papers on how scholars can effectively and efficiently apply action research to their domain. In particular, his presentation and papers can help scholars to think how both rigour and relevance can be sought through and obtained (see below):
