Case Study

Victoria University – Master of Innovation and Commercialisation

About: This Masters programme is designed to develop the practical skills and experience required. It’s ideal for those with a background in engineering, science, business, law or design. Students of the practice-based Masters of Innovation and Commercialisation develop an individual project that interests them and work within a multidisciplinary team consisting of fellow students. This is all be done with active support from a range of industry, government and research organisations that are associated with innovation and commercialisation. The Masters of Innovation and Commercialisation programme is multidisciplinary and has been developed in association with the faculties of Architecture and Design, Engineering, Law, Science and Victoria Business School.

What we were asked to do: Provide a programme focused on presentation skills in advance of participant presentations as part of their final grading for this Masters programme. This included group sessions and 1-2-1 focus on their final presentations. The presentations were to reference programme criteria and how research supported their individual conclusions and the development of their individual project.

Outcome: Our students raved about the value they got from working with Tony to develop their presentations, which was evident in their showcase presentations at the end of the course. One student summed it up well in saying that whenever he met with Tony he always came away feeling much more positive and motivated. We definitely plan to engage with Tony in 2017.
