Go international with the AUA

Would you like to represent the AUA and deliver a keynote at the Digitised Academic Administration: Improving Service Delivery to Students and Staff Conference in Durban, South Africa, between 24 and 25 May 2018?

Our partnership with the Association for Academic Administrators means that this fantastic opportunity is open to you, as a member of the AUA. The conference will focus on topics such as automation, digital and mobile communication, mobile access to information and digital reporting that can lead to building better relationships, growing and sustaining student convenience and services to academic staff.

We are committed to connecting and developing our members and this opportunity is a fantastic way to widen your professional network and expand your professional experience.

Your conference place and accommodation are free and we will also support you with a travel bursary of up to £1000.

Interested? To apply, send an email, detailing in 500 words:

  • Why you would like to attend
  • How the experience will enhance your professional development
  • An outline of your proposed keynote, including the title, subtitle, purpose and learning outcomes

You must be a current member of the AUA and a member at the time of the AAA conference (24 and 25 May 2018) to be eligible.
It is a requirement of acceptance that you report back to the wider AUA community by submitting an article to Newslink following the event.

The AAA do not wish to be too prescriptive for the AUA session and are open to other topics which would contribute insight into the current state of play in the UK and Ireland and the sharing of best practices in administration and management.

The deadline for applications is 9.00 on Monday, 26 February 2018.
