Models of Intergenerational Learning and Living at QUT 2021

The project includes a review of existing literature and intergenerational programs. The data will be collected via key informant interviews and surveys.
The project may also include existing case study data collection via observations. The project produces a case study model that will be tested with key industry or government partners.
The successful applicant will undertake their Ph.D. and will benefit from being part of a research team and working with other Ph.D. students and academics.
The applicant will work closely with supervisors and external industry advisors, on the NHMRC project studying intergenerational campus environments. This project has a number of interstate partners.
