The AUA is thrilled to announce that we are once again offering the fantastic opportunity for one of our members to represent us at the Tertiary Education Management Conference, this year held in Brisbane.

About the event

The Tertiary Education Management Conference is organised in partnership with the Association for Tertiary Education Management (ATEM) and the Tertiary Education Facilities Management Association (TEFMA) and attracts around 800 professional managers from higher education and TAFE institutes, Polytechnics, Wananga, government departments, private providers and similar organisations across Australia and New Zealand.

The opportunity

In partnership with ATEM, the AUA is offering one delegate the opportunity to represent us at TEMC 2020 in Brisbane. We will prioritise applicants who specify that they are willing to deliver a working session. The successful applicant will receive a bursary of £1000 towards travel and accommodation costs as well as free entrance to the conference.

Conference theme

This year’s theme is ‘Bright Futures – Shining the Light on Excellence’ and we will be prioritising applicants who indicate they are willing to deliver a working session which relates to this topic. To give more guidance, the overarching conference theme has been broken down into six sub-sections:

  1. High Performance Culture
  2. Beyond Sustainability
  3. Enriching student experience
  4. Blending the physical and the digital
  5. Uplifting campus vibe
  6. Inclusion and respect

More information about each of these sub-themes can be found here.
