dc.description.abstract This paper utilises a ‘community of practice’ model to reflect on the post-graduate research program at the Institute for Sustainable Futures, UTS. Our work at the Institute involves resolution of complex problems in today’s society, a task which requires insights generated through multiple disciplines. Over the last five years we have conducted an evolving program of activities for our post-graduate students to equip them with the necessary skills for this challenge. This program has been transformational for both individuals and the group, which now operates as a cohesive, mutually learning team. In this paper we look to the ‘community of practice’ model as a critical lens to examine our program and assist in identifying new opportunities to improve our approach to transdisciplinary research training. en
