Pitching Research Matters - For Bond Students and Staff

Kick-start your research planning with this free course

The Pitching Research Matters course has been designed for research-enabled students or novice researchers who may be feeling frustrated, lost or even over-whelmed at the beginning of a research journey. If you are looking for a robust strategy to kick-start your research planning, then this course is definitely for you!

As a novice researcher, it is time-critical that you become able to effectively communicate your research ideas in a clear and succinct manner. Among other things, this skill of research communication is a necessary condition for you to receive timely expert guidance and critical feedback.

This course helps to facilitate foundational understanding of that communication process by providing a simple yet comprehensive framework, operationalized via a “pitching” template. The simple “magic” of this style of pitching your research comes from building your confidence and empowering you to start a meaningful conversation with an experienced research mentor. In this course, you will explore the core building blocks of an effective research pitch that is part of responsible science.

This course is provided free of charge to all Bond students and staff and is available to complete online at any time via our high-quality learner platform. Upon successful completion, you will receive a digital Certificate of Achievement in recognition of your new competencies.
