Natalka Suchowerska


Head of Research (Medical Physics)
Chris O’Brien Lifehouse


1:50 PM Implementing Experiential Learning through Collaborative Frameworks to Engage Researcher Participation

Given the changing nature of our workforce, teaching relevant skills to graduates and researchers are critical to ensuring prosperity in Australia. Traditional methods of class-room teaching are increasingly being challenged by modern experiential learning where students are immersed in real-life environments, working with organisations on industry issues. Traditional approaches to research are now taking into consideration the commercial impact of projects and what the best case practice is to prove the quality of research.

Sharing her experiences across Academia and Industry, Natalka will break down the nuts and bolts of a strong partnership and how the collaboration between University of Sydney and Chris O’Brien Lifehouse has successfully engaged researchers in the Hospital’s challenges.

  • Involving researchers in real-time industry issues to develop new learning capabilities
  • Ensuring there is an effective translational plan in place to keep track of research objectives and its commercial viability.
  • Process behind the exchange of knowledge between the hospital and university to maintain mutual benefits
