Ensuring a Pedagogically Responsive Campus and Facility for 21st Century Learners

The government has pushed consideration of proposed university reforms, including a 20% cut in funding, out beyond the election, until 1 January 2018 and it has ruled out full fee deregulation. With over $2.5 billion dollars of proposed funding cuts on the horizon, this is an uncertain time for Australian universities looking to make strategic decisions with regards to the long-term development of their campuses.

Campus Development will be a part of the inaugural Learning Innovation Week, which includes key education events - Blended Learning and Innovation in Assessment & Credentials, three of our most topical summits will be expanded and interlinked, with joint plenary keynotes before splitting into streams, aimed at driving the future focus and strategy of the Australian tertiary sector.

3 ways this year’s summit addresses the funding challenge:

Hear from top performing universities on how to attract high performing researchers and commercial investment

Understand how to align your campus masterplan with the strategic priorities of your university

Doing More with Less Focus Day - Develop strategies on how to maximise the value of existing building stock in a financially constrained operating environment

At the same time we have seen the launch of the governments ‘National Strategy for International Education 2025’. International education has been identified as one of the five super growth sectors worth $19.6 billion to the Australian economy in 2015. To achieve continued growth universities must build on existing education, training and research strengths to deliver high quality, innovative products and services to students that meet or exceed their expectations.

3 ways this year’s summit addresses the International Education agenda:

Understand how to connect pedagogy with campus and facility design - considerations for 21st century learners

The program discusses how infrastructure design and development can respond to the rise in international student cultures

The design and development of health precincts that facilitate international partnerships and transformational research and learning;

Designing and delivering a modern campus will ensure that a university is able to attract the best students, teachers and researchers and is able to compete both nationally and internationally in a competitive market place. With this in mind, our Campus Development Summit will focus on the key considerations that you need to make to ensure a pedagogically responsive and innovative campus and facility for 21st century learners.
