Community Colleges Australia (CCA) is putting together its 2019 Conference program, which will take place at Brisbane's Stamford Plaza Hotel on 19-20 November.
- Do you have any ideas worth sharing with Australia’s most accomplished adult and community educators?
- Have you recently completed an educational project worthy of wider dissemination?
- Have you developed or implemented any innovative approaches to training, community services or post-secondary education?
- Have you watched and monitored Australia’s educational landscape and come to conclusions that others should hear about?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, we would like to hear from you.
We are looking for innovative, educative and inspiring presentations and ideas that will engage our conference attendees, who come from all around Australia and even overseas.
We are particularly interested in presentations that deal with the conference theme of “Expanding Possibilities” for Australia’s not-for-profit adult and community education sector. All presentation ideas will be considered if they are suitable for our audience of staff and leaders of adult and community education (ACE) organisations, government policy makers, consultants, researchers and other VET leaders. We seek presentations that:
- relate directly to the experiences of Australian community education providers;
- present new, unique and challenging perspectives on vocational education and training (VET);
- provide valuable historical, political, policy, economic or social context to our “current moment” of post-secondary education;
- present case studies of “things that work” in community education or not-for-profit community services;
- could be presented in a “workshop” format that allows participants to develop new skills, insights and understandings;
- fit into the conference streams of education and training, leadership and governance, building skills and community & economic development;
- provide unique and stimulating perspectives on current issues;
- provoke thoughtful responses to current education and training needs; and/or
- encourage engagement and fun.
This is the moment to be creative. We are not bound by academic or other “rules” of what a conference presentation or workshop should look or feel like.
If you have an idea, let us know. Soon.
The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can confirm if your presentation fits.
Have any questions? Email us.
We look forward to hearing from you.
