Preparing a research brief
The research brief aims to address the current and future training and assessment needs within an organisation. It involves identifying the rationale, proposed methods, and procedures for conducting the research. Key activities, timeframes, resources, and expected outcomes are defined, adhering to organisational practices. Additionally, processes for evaluating outcomes, along with a budget and timelines, are developed. Finally, the research proposal is presented to relevant personnel for approval, in accordance with organisational procedures.
Background research & applications
The research, focusing on theories pertinent to vocational education and training, involves managing and implementing research activities with effective project management and data collection techniques. It includes collecting and recording data in accordance with the approved research proposal. The data is then analysed to understand its application and potential impact on enhancing current and future training and assessment practices.
Implement and report on research
ChatGPT The process involves identifying research findings relevant to personal training and assessment practices. Strategies to implement these findings are analysed and selected based on logic and reasonableness, then applied to one's practice. Reporting on the application includes preparing documentation on the research findings for key personnel, adhering to academic referencing and citation standards. Recommendations are made to enhance current and future practices based on these findings, which are then presented for approval. Lastly, criteria to monitor and evaluate new practices, derived from the research recommendations, are established, along with proposed monitoring and evaluation processes.

In Australia, intellectual property (IP) protocols for researchers involve understanding the type of IP created, ownership rights, and protection methods. IP types can include  , and more. Ownership depends on the creator’s relationship with the university or institution and existing legal agreements. Researchers should document the use of third-party IP and seek permission when necessary. Protecting IP can involve patents, trade secrets, copyrights, and registered designs. The University of Melbourne provides guidance and resources for researchers on IP matters​​.
