Thought leaders in tertiary education, change management and leadership motivation are soon to converge on Melbourne for the 40th annual Tertiary Education Management Conference (TEMC).
Between September 17 – 20, the conference will draw hundreds of attendees from around Australasia as people come together to experience three days of new perspectives, revolutionary ideas and practical advice on how to challenge the status-quo in tertiary education.
Following the theme of Eureka! Revolutionary Ideas, this year’s keynote speakers include Professor Glyn Davis, Vice Chancellor and Principal of the University of Melbourne, Dr Jenny Gray, Chief Executive Officer, Zoos Victoria, Dr Jason Fox, Motivational Speaker and bestselling author, and Mr Jason Clarke, Conference Mind Worker.
Alex Hanlon, Executive Director, Learning Resources at the University of Canterbury will be presenting her thoughts on how technological change may impact learning delivery in universities. Alex will also be joining a panel session on Tuesday about Innovations & Entrepreneurship with Nick Kaye, CEO, Sydney School of Entrepreneurship, and Leah Armstrong, Director, Wollotuka Institute, University of Newcastle.
In combining the richness and brilliance of presenters and attendees, the TEMC will ask delegates to ruminate on the big questions facing the higher education sector; How can we design learning spaces and workplaces to be open, innovative systems? How can we build micro environments and ecosystems that nurture ideas rather than leaving them half baked and unfunded? And how can we lead change within and outside of tertiary education facilities?
Conference attendees will be given plenty of opportunities to discover and share their own Eureka moments, with mini-TED talks, Topic-Jams and interactive, hands-on activities. Particular highlights will be Dr Jenny Gray’s insights on organisational transformation in the digital age, and Dr Jason Fox’s perspectives on how to move past ‘default thinking and the curse of efficiency’.
