Protecting your investment: What you can do to maximize student persistence


This workshop summarizes the workshop facilitator’s long experience with student success, persistence and engagement – as well as (to use less attractive language) student attrition and retention.  The session will address the nine key variables that research evidence indicates make a difference to the chances of a student persisting to the end of their educational program.  Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on the resources available at their own institutions, and how practice may be made more effective.

Managing student critical incidents


A critical incident involving a student is distressing for families, friends and staff. The effective management of any critical incident is important. Not only is it important to assist and support affected parties, it is also important to ensure that the situation is not worsened through mismanagement.

This workshop is designed to for those that work with students at any level. It deals with the practical issues of preparation, planning of policy and dealing with actual critical incidents.  The half-day session aims to give you the resources and knowledge to devise or revise policy and procedural guidelines for a critical incident.  Click here for full description.

Marquee Bud Lighting‘Great Gatsby’ Conference Dinner | Pavilion Marquee, The STAR

Contrasting with the modern, developing city the Gold Coast, our theme for the conference dinner will be The Great Gatsby, inspired by the ‘Roaring Twenties’.   Take yourself back to a time of expression, decadence, and dance; an age of wonderful nonsense.  Please join the fun and feather boas by dressing in theme … a little glitz and glamour never hurt anyone.

Inclusive for full registrations but bookings essential.  Additional tickets $130.  Book during registration.
