The 2016 Australian Higher Education Summit Leadership, Technology, Research and Partnership futures for tertiary institutions NEW AGENDA RELEASE Thursday 14th and Friday 15th July, 2016 Melbourne Park Function Centre Senator The Hon Simon Birmingham Federal Minister for Education and Training Prof. Caroline McMillen Vice-Chancellor University of Newcastle Steve Sammartino Expert on digital revolution and disruptive technologies Steve Wheeler (UK) Academic, author, speaker and learning technologist The 2016 Australian Higher Education Summit will provide an unparalleled opportunity for representatives from all tertiary education institutions to gather together and explore the future of best practice across key facets of the industry. The summit features three concurrent conference streams, an interactive expo and a stellar line-up of worldrenowned education experts.

Summit participants will be provided with extensive networking opportunities with colleagues from across the entire higher education sector, and hear case studies from leading Australian and international tertiary institutes. @asamsocial / #asamsocial www.apac-higher-ed-summit.com


Why Attend • Networking opportunities with educators from across the APAC region • Exclusive access to some of Australia and the world’s most well-regarded education experts • See case studies from leading Australian tertiary institutes • Opportunity for emerging leaders to learn from high level leaders • Dedicated to tangible outcomes with a learning focused balance of keynote presentations and panel discussions • Exploring best practice strategies for personal, commercial and organisational success SUMMIT STREAMS Along with a number of plenary sessions, the summit features three concurrent streams across the two days: Technology (both days), Leadership and Management (both days), Research (day 1) and Partnerships (day 2). TECHNOLOGY Major advances in technology across all areas of the education system are now changing the very way that we teach, learn, connect and share information. For academic institutions, charged with equipping students to excel in the new knowledge economy, the possibilities are significant but so too are the challenges. Learning how to seamlessly marry new technologies with established traditions to create more effective outcomes for students and educators remains a crucial goal for the higher education sector. Featured panel discussions in this stream include ‘Innovation that sticks: Leveraging technology to improve teaching and learning’ and ‘Your edTech challenges, solutions and tips to successful implementation.’ LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT As we continue to become an increasingly connected global community, organisations must adapt to new ways of working and the need for dynamic and creative leadership has never been greater. By supporting a culture of leadership at all levels and across all environments, the higher education sector will continue to play a pivotal role in the intellectual, social and cultural development of our developing global community. Featured panel discussions in this stream include ‘Academic leadership from the front: Creating and managing high performing teams’ and ‘Leading stakeholders through change and uncertainty: Collaborative leadership, change management, reforms and challenges.’ RESEARCH (DAY ONE) AND PARTNERSHIPS (DAY TWO) Approaches to research and partnerships are both a source of major debate across the sector. Is research commercially viable, if so how will it be funded and what should a tertiary institution’s research priorities be? Should universities partner with external providers (such as e-learning technology providers or private organisations), and what are the pros and cons of various approaches? Featured panel discussions in this stream include ‘Publish or perish: Research engagement and impact – where to from here?’ and ‘Navigating partnerships: Linking course development in a tertiary institute with industry.’ www.apac-higher-ed-summit.com 2

EVENT INFORMATION Things you need to know: Summit registration will commence at 8:30am Thursday 14th July Official Summit sessions will conclude at 4:30pm Friday 15th July. Networking drinks are complimentary and will take place on both days Melbourne Park Function Centre Batman Avenue Melbourne VIC 3000 ABOUT THE ORGANISERS The Australian School of Applied Management’s elite senior faculty sits at the helm of an extensive network of academics, business leaders, and expert facilitators. These exceptional individuals – comprising highly credentialed educators from Europe, North America, the Middle East and Australasia – continue to set new standards in the development and delivery of leadership education. In close consultation with a National Board of Advisors and partner Schools of Learning, ASAM’s programs are designed to address all levels of management experience, geographical locations and industry sectors to increase this capacity throughout Australia and beyond. www.asam.edu.au info@asam.edu.au @asamsocial #asamsocial The 2016 Australian & Asia-Pacific Higher Education Summit has evolved from the extensive work of the National Excellence in Educational Leadership Initiative (NEELI) throughout the Asia-Pacific region. Initially created to cater exclusively to leaders in higher education, NEELI is now broadening its scope to include leaders from a range of organisations throughout the vocational education and training sector. In an extension to the original methodologies used to create highly successful programs for school leaders, NEELI programs also combine the very best leadership pedagogy from the corporate sector with an informed understanding of the challenges faced by today’s educational leaders. Utilising the latest developments in online and blended learning technologies, NEELI programs marry the best of connected dialogic learning with easy to use and highly accessible online environments. Both NESLI and NEELI are collaborative arrangements bringing together an impressive group of stakeholders with a common commitment around developing exceptional learning organisations through exceptional leadership. Through the provision of global best practice in leadership development, both NESLI and NEELI target the immediate need to equip Australian educators – across all divides – with the skills, knowledge and confidence to overcome the complex leadership challenges in today’s learning environments. In conjunction with many of Australia’s most respected educational institutions, NESLI and NEELI are creating a new national standard in educational leadership. www.apac-higher-ed-summit.com 10
