The Centre for Research in Educational Futures and Innovation (CREFI) - Partnerships and Engagement provides short-term, intensive educational opportunities for anyone seeking professional learning, or as an alternative to full-time studies. All professional learning programs are informed by research and provide 'options' for professionals or students who wish to gain credit toward an elective unit within a Deakin University undergraduate and/or postgraduate award course.
Our programs cater to people who are seeking work as integration aides in school settings, as well as allied health and educational professionals who wish to improve their professional skills and knowledge. Please refer to our professional learning pages for further information.
