Event description
The South Australian branches of ACEN and HERDSA present Incentivize us ‘snapshots’ – Higher Education KPIs in the new decade

About this Event

As we ring in the New Year with its traditionally frenetic planning (and for some of us sweeping institutional changes) it’s time to be reminded that ‘everything old is new again’. As of 2020, our work will be measured for its ‘graduate employment outcomes, student success, student experience and enrolment of Indigenous, disadvantaged and rural students’ (Hunter, 2019).

Who better to explore what this means for our practice than we, the ACEN and HERDSA colleagues?

Join us at UniSA College on Friday 14 February at 9.30am for an ACEN/HERDSA 'Snapshots' event. Contribute a presentation or come along.

Do you have some successful graduate employment programs? What are your stories about student success and experience in your teaching? How best to we encourage equity in higher education? In an already volatile higher education environment in South Australia, what do the new KPIs mean for our practice?

Now is the time to repurpose, reuse and recycle those conference and seminar papers from 2019 in an informal ‘shapshots’ gathering among Adelaide’s foremost Higher Educators (that’s us!) to uncover the true implications of the Performance-based Funding for the Commonwealth grant scheme 2019

Join us in this informal gathering to welcome 2020 and reflect on the meaning of these four performance ‘measures’ – what they mean for our institutions and teaching practice.

If you would like to present, submit a 400-word abstract (including the title and names of authors) by 4.00pm, January 24. Presentations will be 15 minutes long with 10 minutes for discussion. Presenters will be notified of the outcome by January 31, 2020.
