The symposium will focus on employability initiatives that are inclusive and provide equitable opportunities and will address the following themes within higher education:

  • Enterprise Education
  • Sustainability
  • Authentic Assessment
  • Work Integrated Learning
  • The 3Es from a careers perspective
  • Inter/Multi-disciplinary approaches

AUA Annual Conference and Exhibition 2023 (Association of University Administrators)
2-4 July 2023
University of Warwick
Proposals due 09:00 on Monday 13 February 2023

Proposals are being invited for the AUA Annual Conference and Exhibition 2023, which must address this year’s theme: Becoming a Higher Education Professional: Continual Reinvention in a Transforming Sector. This theme centres on the career pathways of professional staff and explores a continual self-reinvention to navigate a changing and challenging sector. This theme challenges the notion of having a fixed identity as a HE professional and instead offers that our professional self is fluid and in a perpetual state of self-overcoming – always learning, always changing, always growing. In our becoming as professionals we are an active plastic force, a powerful energy that can transform – but we need to be able to imagine, to be creative and to dare to do things differently.
