Priority setting in higher education

ACU are leading a study, PROSPECT, to understand what Australian university staff and students believe are the priorities for research in learning and teaching.

The PROSPECT study

You are invited to participate in the PROSPECT Study being conducted by the INSPIRE team at ACU: Priorities in Research for Strategic Planning for Evidence-based Curriculum and Teaching.

The purpose of this study is to answer the question: “What do students, educators and academic leaders believe are the research priorities in higher education learning and teaching?”

The information collected as part of this project will contribute to a national database of research priorities to guide future research and improve the experiences of students and staff in universities.

Participation involves a short online survey that takes about five minutes to complete.

To participate, you need to be:

  • aged over 18 years
  • employed as an academic staff member (ongoing, part-time or sessional employment) with at least  five years of experience working in higher education, or
  • employed as an academic staff member (ongoing, part-time or sessional employment) with at least five years of experience working in higher education who is also
  • concurrently a student at an Australian university.

If you are interested in participating, please read the participant information letter within the survey link below. Participation is entirely voluntary, and your responses are confidential. As the intent is to engage as many people as possible in the research, so you may see this announcement several times across different channels. Please only complete the questionnaire once.

I’d like to participate in the study

The survey will be open until the end of May.
