4. Training and Courses

The UQ criminology team runs a series of Evidence-Based Policy and Practice Masterclasses which focus on:

  • Building productive partnerships between policymakers, police and researchers
  • Learning the mechanics of experimental evaluations (including randomised controlled trial [RCT] design, case flow, randomisation, and project management).
  • Demonstrating how to select potential RCT-worthy initiatives, operational considerations, including funding, and legal/ethical considerations.
