IHT All Members Day

2 March 2022, 9.30am-2.00pm

We are hoping to see you all in person at Deakin Downtown for our first All Members Day for 2022 but once again this is subject to COVID restrictions.

We look forward to key presentations from our Cat 1 Seed Funding Grant Recipients for 2021, as well as updates from Rachel Huxley and Peter Enticott from the Faculty of Health.  We also plan to have a photographer there on the day and there are still some appointments available.

Further details about our keynote speaker, will be provided in the coming week.

You can register for the event on Eventbrite and view the draft agenda in the Members’ Portal.

Strategic career development workshop: working with(in) industry

The EMCR committee will host a two-part online workshop series on Tuesday 17 May and Thursday 19 May from 10am–12pm each day. The workshops will be presented by Dr Olga Hogan.

During the two-part workshop, Olga will help you to discover your unique skills and qualities that can be utilised when designing your career and working with(in) industry.

Olga will also demonstrate how to communicate your unique value proposition to connect with government, corporates, or not-for-profits; for anything from research partnerships to developing your career.

Registration details will be shared when they become available.

Micro credential: promoting human and planetary health

Health and sustainability professionals can now undertake our new 6 week micro-credential: Promoting human and planetary health: tools for a sustainable future.

Led by health and sustainability expert Sue Noy with support from IHT’s Dr Rebecca Patrick, the micro-credential was co-designed with industry experts and IHT partners. The micro-credential will help students gain an understanding of the inter-connectedness of human and planetary health, why it is critically important for the health of humans and the environment, and how to work toward sustainable health outcomes that benefit both. This micro-credential can be stacked together with related Deakin stackable short courses to build towards postgraduate Deakin degrees. Enrol now!
