12th Annual Higher Education Summit  #higheredsummit

20-21 May 2014 | Grand Chancellor Hotel, Adelaide

In the post reform era and at a time of great political change there has been much discussion on how the university long term strategy can remain flexible and resilient in the face of changes to policy environments. The nature of the demand driven system is under a spotlight. And university structures are undergoing a rethink around the need for more efficient models that will effectively balance the core university missions - teaching and learning, research – with the commercial imperatives of modern universities.

The 2014 Higher Education Summit seeks to take forward the discussion on the post reform tertiary sector, considering some of the key challenges posed to the Australian University at a time of political change and rapid innovation in service delivery. The discussion will range from university structures, planning and strategy to governance, funding and innovation and excellence in teaching and learning and research.

The forum looks at a broad range of themes including:

> Reviewing the demand driven system
> Debating deregulation
> Innovative university structures
> Governance, accountability and sector resilience
> Changing structures and the movements towards a demand driven VET system
> Re-committing to the core mission of teaching and learning
> Models for student engagement in a multi modal service system
> Reshaping the rationale and approaches to international education
