Research Accelerator: opportunities for research students and staff

Our friends at Academic Consulting have put together courses that cover the basics to prepare for your next qualitative or quantitative research project, allowing you to learn the material you need on your own time, wherever and whenever you want.

Courses available

Each course bundle includes:

  • NVivo and SPSS self-paced training videos
  • Downloadable resources
  • Q&A support

Opportunities for research students

AUT postgraduate students can apply for a free pass to a Research Accelerator course from Academic Consulting Ltd. We have a limited number of passes to give away, so please contact pgresearcherdevelopment@aut.ac.nz to claim your pass!

Opportunities for staff

The Graduate Research School offers a limited number of subsidised places for Research Accelerator memberships, NVivo, SPSS and data analysis courses to research staff members. More information about this is available on TUIA, the staff intranet.

Consultation sessions (45 minutes)

If you need help with a particular issue, such as a particular struggle with research software, a free 45-minute consultation session with Dr Lyn Lavery from Academic Consulting will be helpful. Consultations are for research supervisors (either together with your postgraduate research student or by yourself) to work through qualitative and mixed methods projects.

To book a consultation session, supervisors will need to access the Academic Consulting calendar on TUIA.
