Inkpath information

HDR Development uses Inkpath as our platform to register for events and as a way to identify, track and monitor areas requiring development based on the Researcher Development Skills Framework. This platform is available to all UC HDR candidates from 2021 and stays with you long after you graduate from UC.

Unlike other platforms, Inkpath connects to the University of Canberra’s single sign-on system. This means you won’t have to fill out repetitive forms for every event you attend and also streamlines the administrative process with connecting your activities with RGrad

The full Inkpath Instruction Manual can be viewed here.

Recording your attendance on Inkpath helps us with a few things:

  • Anonymous attendance data is used for program reporting and future program planning. For continued support and dynamic workshops, mark your attendance!
  • Encouraging participants to attend events for which they are registered.
  • Streamlining the complicated, manual process of entering all attendance data into Eventbrite/Zoom/Teams and then again into RGrad which means ReD staff can focus more on program development and delivery and less on event administration.

Cancelling your Activity

To cancel your registration for an activity, please follow the steps below:

  • Navigate to the activities page and click “Upcoming” or “Past.”
  • Click on your corresponding activity and then click the green “Cancel Booking” button.
  • Choose a reason why you are cancelling.
