2020 - Symposium

You are cordially invited to attend the National Association of Enabling Educators of Australia (NAEEA) 2-day free On-line Symposium on 10th and 11th December 2020.

We promise an interactive, engaging and thought-provoking event as well as the opportunity for a collective ‘sigh’ as we come to the end of a tumultuous 2020 that has impacted our sector in a multitude of ways.

Across the two-days we will consider: What is the future of enabling education in Australia?

In the spirit of Q & A, our symposium will feature 4 panel sessions. Each will be hosted by experts, friends and champions of equity in higher education.

While we have a Chair of each panel, we are seeking expressions of interest to fill the remaining panel positions. This means you have the opportunity to pitch for a place on a panel on the following topics:

  • ‘To AQF or not AQF? Constraints and Opportunities for Enabling Programs’ – Panel Chair, Professor Sally Kift
  • ‘Where to from here? Bracing for impacts of the Job-Ready Graduates Package’ – Panel Chair, Associate Professor Nadine Zacharias
  • ‘F2F or digital connection: can enabling pedagogy transform the virtual learning experience?’ – Panel Chair, Dr Anna Bennett

We will also hear from students in our enabling programs with a panel session on:

  • ‘The hidden benefits of enabling education: a letter to our Prime Minister’ – Panel Chair, Alumni Enabling Student Matthew Bowden

Our live audience (YOU) can post questions in advance for our panel to discuss, debate and offer insight on how we can navigate the political, economic and social realms impacting higher education.

Also as part of this symposium, Enabling educators and practitioners are also encouraged to record a 3-minute thesis style video sharing your teaching tips, tricks, hacks and revelations learnt this year due to COVID. This will be instead of a regular ‘live’ conference style presentation. The videos will be shared across the 2-day symposium with the ability for audience members to comment and contact you if they have any questions.
