The principal purpose of affiliation between AUSIT and tertiary educational institutions is to forge closer links between the education sector and the profession, thus ensuring that education remains relevant and that professionals continue to advance their knowledge and skills.
Affiliation enables our Affiliates to communicate with our membership, attend our national and mini-conferences at a discount, access our mentoring program, and participate in our Student Excellence Awards.
For further information, please review our sample agreement (below). You can also request the online contract from firstname.lastname@example.org. The contract will not be valid until AUSIT has countersigned it.
AUSIT is committed to quality of translating and interpreting. AUSIT therefore encourages professional practice that is informed by empirical research. For this purpose, the National Council has approved a research project grant scheme (ARPG), subject to funding approval in each year’s budget. The aim of the scheme is to fund or otherwise support applied research that can be used to inform and improve our members’ professional practice.
The fund can be used towards a stand-alone project or as part of an Australian Research Council Linkage grant, where AUSIT becomes a Linkage partner. The maximum amount of the research project grant, on the years when funding is available, is $5000.
Financial Year 2021/22: Please note that in order to enable the continuation of discounted membership fees for all members, AUSIT will only be able to provide in-kind support to suitable projects this year. Grant funding will again be considered for the 22/23 financial year.
If you believe you meet the requirements, please fill out the application form and send it to email@example.com. Applications for the Research Grant will be accepted for the period 1 January to 31 July (inclusive) each year.
Researchers who wish to address AUSIT members for the purpose of conducting research need to familiarise themselves with AUSIT’s Call for Research Participants protocol and require prior approval by the Education Committee as described in the below document.
