Call for Session Proposals
We are now inviting working session proposals for the Autumn Conference 2021 which will be held online Thursday, 18 November 2021.
The focus of this year’s Autumn Conference is:
Enhancing HE: Innovating, adapting, improving
Out of necessity, we’ve all been doing things differently. We’ve been required to adapt what we do and how we do it to deliver our responsibilities and services during the height of the pandemic. As we emerge from restricted life and slowly return to campus we want to ensure we capture your learning and successes. The Autumn Conference will provide a space to consider what’s next for higher education professional services and to share innovations, learning, solutions and the best practice that has progressed our approach to work to meet today’s needs and challenges.
We’re looking to deliver a programme which includes practical advice, case studies and ideas which can be taken and used by others in the workplace. This is an opportunity to showcase your knowledge and experience and share examples of effective professional practice with colleagues across the sector.
We would like session proposals which address the following topics (this list is not exhaustive)
- Effective use of technology: could include ‘how to’ sessions and/or case studies of ways of using tech
- New ways of working: could include; processes, efficiencies, digitisation, flexible working, hybrid teams
- Equality, diversity and inclusion
- Wellbeing: focusing on staff and students
- Career planning and development
The AUA CPD Framework is at the centre of all our professional development activities. We are looking for sessions which cover at least one of the following professional behaviours:
- Achieving results
- Finding solutions
- Embracing change
- Using resources effectively
- Developing self and others
