Student Success Panel

Tuesday 2 July | 9:00am

Opening this year’s conference will be a student panel invited to share their journey and experience of higher education.

The panel will be facilitated by Dr Kylie Austin, President EPHEA and Emeritus Professor Ron Oliver. Students will be asked to prepare to respond to some of the following questions:

  • What has been your journey into and through higher education to date?
  • What have you found most challenging and/or rewarding about your university experience?
  • Could you tell me about a time when someone or something made a positive impact to your student experience?
  • What changes to the higher education sector do you think would have the greatest impact on student success?
  • One of the early outcomes of the University’s Accord was a greater focus on student support, to encourage more students to complete their studies. What does effective support look like from your perspective?
  • In this room, we have people undertaking student support, teaching and learning and administrative support to students. What would be your advice to them in taking away something from this conference to implement in their institutions?

Our first Keynote Speaker will then follow the panel.
