2019 NAFEA Conference

NAFEA is the national peak body for higher education staff involved in the logistics and administration of work-integrated learning across Australia. Each year, the NAFEA conference brings together a range of stakeholders from across the WIL cycle including NAFEA members, WIL administrators, WIL Researchers, placement providers and policy makers.

WHERE:

Hosted by University of Southern Queensland at the Burke and Wills Hotel (554 Ruthven St, Toowoomba Qld 4350).

WHEN:

Wednesday 20 November – Friday, 22 November 2019

THEME: 

Where there’s WIL, there’s a way

The conference will explore current and future challenges associated with work-Integrated learning (WIL) with a focus on regional, rural and remote WIL and issues related to equity and access to WIL. The conference sessions will focus on a broad range of topics related to WIL in the context of the National WIL Strategy, increasing demands for WIL, and the seemingly increasing risks. The conference will provide a forum for practitioners, administrators and other allies to discuss strategies, innovations and practices.

Presentations, break-out sessions and workshops are welcomed on the broader theme of the conference as well as related to:

  • Access to and administration of regional, rural or remote WIL opportunities;
  • Inclusive and innovative practices in delivering or administering WIL;
  • Strategies to address challenges of access and inclusion in upscaling WIL;
  • Addressing issues of inclusiveness, diversity, and health and well-being of staff, students and supervisors;
  • Addressing issues of employability and student labour contributions;
  • Risk mitigation and risk management of WIL experiences;
  • Facilitating and administering multi-/inter-/trans-disciplinary WIL in innovative and emerging contexts.

For information on presenting at the conference, see Call for Presenters.

Further details of the program will be posted on the NAFEA website and Facebook  page as soon as the program is finalised.
