Event description

UTS is committed to research, innovation, and sharing knowledge of public value. Our researchers are leaders in creating solutions for the increasingly complex challenges facing our society—driving sustainable economic, social, and cultural prosperity.

Not all scholarly research turns into a journal article. 

A software algorithm, architectural design, film, or article of clothing could all be Non-Traditional Research Outputs. 

UTS PhDs can integrate NTROs into their research journey, part of the distinctive way UTS supports our students to explore issues and problems that are meaningful to them. 

NTROs are one way of creating and sharing new knowledge through practice-based or applied research

In this session, you'll hear from a range of UTS researchers who incorporate NTROs into their research practice. Topics include:

  • why NTROs are worth pursuing as a researcher
  • what forms NTROs commonly take in different disciplines
  • creativity, industry, and NTROs
  • how researchers evaluate the quality of a NTRO
  • what steps you can take to incorporate a NTRO into your research journey


  • A/Prof. Cherine Fahd, School of Design, DAB
  • A/Prof. Asif Gill, Head of Discipline, Software Engineering, School of Computer Science, FEIT

This session is for both HDR students and supervisors. For supervisors, attendance counts as part of your ongoing supervisor development. 

The Graduate Research School offers a series of workshops and modules to strengthen supervisors’ knowledge, skills and tools in best supervisory practices. For more information about HDR supervisor training requirements and development opportunities, visit the GRS website.
