With ACODE meetings consisting of a one day workshop as well as a business meeting, a range of resources are produced for each meeting that provide useful references for members.
All workshop papers and other electronic resources are archived in the ACODE Communications Hub on moodle. For ease of access these resources, as well as surveys that members have initiated, are organised chronologically. Please log in to find these resources.
To promote best practice, and to support professional development opportunities, ACODE regularly initiates internal and collaborative projects with other national professional bodies.
Members with ideas and suggestions for new projects are encouraged to discuss them directly with members of the ACODE Executive in the first instance. The ACODE Executive will take into account the following issues when considering project funding applications:
- Relationship to ACODE Strategic Directions
- Potential to raise the profile of ACODE
- Potential for collaborative activity with other groups/bodies/agencies
- National/International significance
- The research plan associated with it
- Relevance to members
- Use and justification of proposed budget
- Timeframe for proposed project activities
- Potential uses of proposed project outcomes
- Maintenance issues
- Relationship to previous work undertaken
- Availability of key contributors
- Level of "In kind" contribution - eg software/hardware, office space, communications etc
Please complete the Application for Project Funding and return to the Executive Officer. A signed hard copy must also be posted to ACODE, c/o The Executive Officer, TLC, University of Canberra, ACT 2601. The application will then be considered by the Executive at its next meeting and the outcome communicated to the Chief Investigator/s. Applications involving multiple ACODE member institutions are particularly encouraged.
From time to time ACODE is also asked to support external projects, such as the AAHESIS project. These are projects where an institution, or consortium of institutions, have applied for funding and wish to include ACODE as a partner or sponsor. Typically, these projects call upon the ACODE network to gather or disseminate information.
The ACODE Executive will use the above criteria to determine the appropriateness of ACODE support of any such projects.
