The tidal wave of workplace change since 2020 has left a lot of higher education staff – and higher education organisations – struggling to adapt.
Fortunately, our friends at the Association for Tertiary Education Management (ATEM) are carving out time to look at some solutions at the Second annual Women in Higher Education Leadership symposium.
We have two tickets which will be awarded to the first two readers to contact our technology and administration marvel Amanda Johnson today at firstname.lastname@example.org
The conference brings together a range of speakers to look at how staff can prepare for the future of work in the higher education sector. This is less watch out for the robots and flying cars and more how we can best cope with the hear and now.
The need for many to rapidly switch from classroom teaching to online environments; from working in open plan to working at home to working back on campus in any quiet corner that can be found; and from isolated cheating cases to the nest of questions and redefinition heralded by ChatGPT.
The conference will feature a keynote by Professor Leah Ruppanner, Professor of Sociology and Founding Director of The Future of Work Lab at the University of Melbourne, who will explore recent research into the mental load of managing flexible and hybrid working.
The keynote will be followed by a panel discussion – online from 12.30 to 2.00 pm AEST, Tuesday 1 August 2023. Tickets free for ATEM members, A$55 for ATEM affiliates, A$100 public. Details and bookings: www.atem.org.au/events/event/women-in-higher-education-leadership-symposium-2023
