Research in local government is an important tool for improving capacity and outcomes. Research generates new knowledge to improve service delivery, challenge or shed new light on existing attitudes, values and practices, or develop new perspectives and innovation.
This course enables participants to become critical users of research outputs through developing their skills in interpreting and applying findings. The course exposes participants to key materials and references, expert agency and council speakers. It enables good practice exchange amongst participating councils, and adopts a reflective and practical teaching style.
Enrolments for 2019 courses will open shortly. Please register your interest in this course and we will contact you when enrolments are open.
