The LH Martin Institute Service Improvement and Innovation in Tertiary Education Conference

Thursday 25th - Friday 26th October 2018

Increased competition domestically and internationally, increasingly stringent and volatile regulation and accreditation requirements, the vagaries of government policy, funding arrangements, pedagogical experimentation, market forces, and more engaged communities are all having an impact on how we teach and how we do business. In this changing, on-demand world, how can we provide innovative, effective and quality education? What impact will a digitised world have on research? And what will this mean for the tertiary education sector workforce?

No matter if we work in public or private institutions, vocational or higher education; if we are regional or city-based; a member of academic or professional staff, in one way or another we are all grappling with these questions and the potential ramifications. With a highly interactive format featuring in-depth practical workshops; keynote speakers from within and outside the sector and lessons from your peers during breakout sessions, the conference aims to encompass all aspects of innovation in tertiary education and capture the collaborative efforts we hope to nurture between industry, government and education providers to create the best outcomes for the tertiary education sector.

Insights and examples of innovation will be discussed through four broad themes:

  • Focusing on the student user experience
  • Introducing new business models
  • The future ecosystem of education
  • Learning to innovate: building organisational and personal skills

The 2018 Conference will bring the tertiary education sector together to learn from each other by sharing ideas, successes, and lessons learned; to hear from leading professionals in other sectors facing similar issues; to enable collaborative opportunities across the sector, and to build our own skills and competencies to enable us to contribute successfully to the change agenda of our employers.

What sets this conference apart is the collegial spirit in which presenters and participants interact. It is about joint capacity building and providing a catalyst for new ideas and establishing new and consolidating existing innovative networks. It also provides participants with an opportunity to develop new or refine existing knowledge and skills to take back into their workplace.
