2019 Meetings and Events

The SIG meets online monthly, and acts as a focal point for the practices enacted at Australasian universities.  We’re a community firstly – seeking to support each other, disseminate findings and practical outcomes, and share challenges.  The community seeks to make a difference in the Australasian higher education landscape through collaborative opportunities, informing local practice, enabling research and practice-based projects, and building networks.

The agenda is highly flexible, and members are invited to add to the agenda via the links below.
