CITBA Research Training Series

Research Training Series

Welcome to the Research Training Series by CITBA. Our programs offer a diverse collection of resources, including webinars, special courses, and training sessions, all facilitated by esteemed academic experts from our center. Our aim is to provide attendees with an array of topics to help them enhance their research skills and knowledge. Our offerings cover a broad range of subjects, so there is something for everyone to benefit from.

Training videos

The training sessions are tailored to meet the needs of Higher Degree Research (HDR) students and Early Career Researchers (ECRs) who are just starting out in their research career. Each video focuses on different aspects of research methods, design, tools, and writing. To ensure the sessions are most beneficial, we suggest that HDR students discuss with their supervisors which sessions align best with their current goals and needs. This series is edited by A/Prof Taha Chaiechi, who is Australia Director for CITBA, with a passion for providing additional research training opportunities to develop professional capabilities of our HDR cohort and ECRs.

Paper Development Workshops in Sustainability and Resilience

The Paper Development Workshop in Sustainability and Resilience (PDWSR) series is established by popular demand to complement our annual BEMAS Conference program, providing opportunities to engage in in-depth discussions with high profile CITBA researchers and editors of CITBA’s associated journals. The workshops are designed to improve and encourage interactions not usually featured in other CITBA programs. The PDWRS sessions are structured as a workshop in a highly interactive format.

The Stock Flow Consistent Modelling (SFCM)

At CITBA, we provide training on Stock Flow Consistent Modelling (SFCM) for individuals and organizations interested in learning and advocating for the use of Stock Flow Consistent (SFC) modelling in economic analysis. SFC modelling is a method of economic modelling that places significant emphasis on ensuring the consistency between the stocks and flows of economic variables such as money and goods. This approach enables a more accurate understanding and prediction of economic behavior, making it a valuable tool for economists and analysts alike.
