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.
