overview

The Australian Financial Review’s Higher Education Summit returns in August, bringing together the sectors’ most esteemed thought-leaders and disruptors to discuss the future of higher education in Australia.

With the incisive, independent style it is known for, the summit will once again interrogate prevailing Higher Education policies and practices, and showcase true, transformational innovation from Australia and abroad – all with an eye to uncovering the critical forces that will shape the competitive Higher Education landscape in the years ahead.

With borders tightening in the USA and the UK, will Australia see a boom in international students and if so, how should the sector respond? In a rapidly evolving job market, are we effectively preparing our graduates for the workforce? And what is the latest thinking on bespoke education, micro-credentials and nano-degrees?

This year the summit will be extended to a third day dedicated entirely to the powerful emergence of EdTech – entitled the AFR Edtech Summit, in partnership with EduGrowth. With themes ranging from the current EdTech landscape, to the future of education, visiting alternative educational models, technology influencing student experience and the perspective of venture capitalists towards educational start-ups, the AFR’s Edtech Summit in partnership with EduGrowth promises to be an exciting new addition to this flagship event.

Returning this year is the AFR’s Higher Education Awards, including the following categories;

  • Community Engagement Award
  • Education Technology Award
  • Emerging Leader Award, sponsored by Perrett Laver.
  • Employability Award, sponsored by Pearson.
  • Equity and Opportunity Award
  • Facilities Innovation Award
  • Industry Engagement Award, sponsored by Technology One.
  • International Education Award, sponsored by Top Education Institute.
  • Learning Experience Award
  • Lifetime Achievement Award, sponsored by UniSuper.

Be sure to attend to see the most innovative and exemplary practice of universities across Australia.
