The emergency and disaster management industries have highlighted the importance of contemporary practice being grounded in current research and evidence. You will be encouraged to question why and how research can inform best practice, analyse research critically, and identify how to transform information into applicable policies and procedures. You will focus on using research and evidence to guide best practice, and this approach will inform content delivery and assessment. As a student in this unit, you will learn how to make quick and effective decisions using available research and evidence, which in turn will inform decision making processes which are grounded in evidence-based practice.

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified
as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa,
must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study
period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining
at least an 80% attendance record).
This unit has a website, within the Moodle system, which is available two weeks before the start of term. It is important that you visit your Moodle site throughout the term.
