This post is a summary of a TED talk of
Sessional Trainer with PHD or Research Skills Wanted
Mediation Institute has been asked by a potential student to provide the unit BSBRES801 Initiate and lead applied research, which is listed in the current Grad Dip FDR.
The student is keen to complete a rigorous research unit at Grad Dip level so she could qualify to do a Masters by Research or PHD program at a university. Our existing Grad Dip FDR has been accepted by Charles Sturt University and other universities as granting a credit for one third of one of their masters courses ( One student actually got a 50% credit but Ken is a very persuasive mediator).
If you are looking to move more towards academia then you will need to do a “Introduction to Research” unit as part of your postgraduate studies before commencing a Research unit. Typically these are done as part of an honours year or in other postgraduate studies in University.
I possibly have a couple of other students interested in following this path so it may be a course option that will grow over time.
Please note that we are also looking for training support for a “Graduate Diploma in Relationship Counselling” for both that full program and a Double Graduate Diploma option for our existing students but that is a secret which we havent announced yet so I ask you not to tell anyone about this.
If anyone is interested or knows of a suitable candidate please let me know
