The YuMi Deadly Centre bases its projects around partnerships with educational systems and organisations, built around collaborations designed to benefit mathematics teaching and learning within these organisations. This is achieved predominantly through action and design research, with participating teachers trialling and modifying YDM approaches and resources for mathematics teaching and learning.
YDC highly values its partnerships with educational and government organisations, regions and schools that have an interest in supporting its research and improving learning outcomes for all students.
Partnering with YDC
YDC actively seeks and encourages new partnerships with government agencies, non-profit organisations, youth sector agencies, private enterprise and other organisations. There are several ways to establish a partnership with the YuMi Deadly Centre:
- partner with us on a research grant application
- invest in one of our existing research and training projects
- work with us to develop a project specifically tailored to your situation
- engage YDC researchers to undertake commercial research or consultancy work
- support YDC financially or in kind to extend its capacity to undertake research and development.
YDC welcomes funding support for either its core business or for individual projects, structured around one-of-a-kind support or ongoing partnerships. Support can be tailored for the individual needs of the funding partner. YDC works closely with QUT’s philanthropy and corporate engagement people to meet the governance needs of financial supporters and partners.
Philanthropic funding would allow YDC to have the flexibility to fund specific projects both short and long term, seed trials or pilot studies for attracting additional support from government sources, or fund scholarships for higher degree research.
If you are interested in helping to support YDC, please contact us, so we can discuss your situation and preferences.
