We are delighted to announce yet another exciting output from the GoNano project: at the start of their second semester in July 2020, RMIT University launched a micro-credential on “Understanding Responsible Research and Innovation”.
This micro-cred is a short, fully online course containing reading and viewing exercises and interactive decision-making activities inspired by expert interviews and other outputs from GoNano. The course provides learners with a practical set of skills and concepts that allows them put the principles of responsible research and innovation (RRI) into practice in their own research projects, ensuring their research is future-focused, ethically sound and ready to change the world for the better.
Housed on RMIT’s student learning platform, the micro-cred is open to all students enrolled at RMIT’s campuses in Melbourne and Vietnam, with plans to extend availability to even wider audiences under development. Similar courses focussed on incorporating co-creation into research and innovation are also planned for late 2020. The micro-credential courses complement the other training resources produced during the project and designed to build capacity in RRI and co-creation among researchers and engineers. Check out the complete suite of training materials for researchers and engineers available on the GoNano project website.
The GoNano final conference will also be a great online platform for individuals and organisations to exchange ideas virtually and learn about the state-of-the-art in co-creation, responsiveness and practicing societal engagement in research and innovation.
