To encourage wider adoption and dissemination of Faff’s (2015, 2019) Pitching Research framework, herein, I set out a carefully organized resource kit for instructors charged with the goal of research capacity building and/or research training. Targeted instructors include: “research process” course leaders; Honors year instructors; HDR course leaders and any other instructors with a research training remit. The Resource kit is organized under six broad headings: (1) Essential resources; (2) Recommended resources; (3) Supplementary resources; (4) Discipline-specific resources; (5) Suggested classes, activities and assessment; (6) Additional Pitching Research literature. Discipline specific areas covered include: Accounting; Finance; Information Systems; Management; Marketing; Strategy; Tourism; Science; Economics & Policy; Medicine & Health; Humanities & Social Sciences; Psychology; and Engineering. Additionally, I provide access to 35 language translations of the cued version of the pitching template.
