SUB-THEMES

This conference seeks to explore evidence-based practice in international education by looking at the following sub-themes;

Compliance, policy & ESOS
This sub-theme focuses on the range, scope, and requirements of the regulations, and quality assurance amidst the challenges of a changing landscape. Have policy and regulation kept pace with changes, is it able to adapt or meet future needs and demands. Where are the gaps and where are the opportunities? This sub-theme also looks at staff and resource development that addresses the need to develop expertise and knowledge.

Employability
This sub-theme looks at the development of skills, expertise, and opportunities that have been identified as essential for the future. We look at how these are identified and incorporated into WIL – internships and placements, graduate development and employment programs as well as volunteer work. Examples include supporting start-ups, developing resilience and creative talents and engaging students in the dialogue.

Future of international education
COVID-19 and the global pandemic have dramatically altered the international education sector in Australia and overseas. This sub-theme explores the challenges, issues, and concerns as well as the forecasts for the future of international education both from the Australian perspective and internationally. Are we prepared for the future that includes blended learning, trans-national partnerships? How is the sector preparing for the needs of students that are onshore and offshore?

Impact of international education experience
This sub-theme looks at the influence and impact of international education on the social, cultural, and economic fabric of Australian society. Examples include how students engage and benefit from community and industry engagement and the influence and impact of international education on the Australian community, education sectors and industry.

Innovation
This sub-theme explores evidence-based good practice in services, support and teaching strategies that embrace new technologies, partnerships, and opportunities. Examples include the incorporation of digital technologies, community and student engagement, government and industry programs and projects.

You will be asked to identify a sub-theme from the list above that best suits your presentation.  This selection assists the program committee to sort the successful abstracts into suitable similarly themed sessions. If you feel your submission does not fit any of the above sub-themes there will be an ‘Other’ option you may select instead.

While you will be asked to indicate your preferred presentation format, the program committee may request an alternative format be considered. The committee will allocate presentations to the program taking into account the preference of authors and the balance of the program.

ORAL PRESENTATIONS

This format is closest to the traditional ISANA conference oral presentation.  It consists of a 20-minute oral presentation plus 5 minutes Q&A.  Generally scheduled with 2-4 other orals of a similar sub-theme topic. 

  • Submission requires a 250-word abstract overview of the presentation.
  • If accepted the presenter(s) must present a 20-minute presentation at the conference, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A
  • The presentation will be scheduled in a concurrent session with 2-4 other orals submitted in the same sub-theme
  • All presenters participating in the presentation must register and pay the required fee to attend the conference.

QUICK BITE ORALS

These are shorter 10 minutes oral presentations that will be scheduled in an appropriate session and followed by a 3-5 minute Q&A.  They are particularly suited to student and novice conference presenters.

  • Submission requires a 250-word abstract overview of the presentation.
  • If accepted the presenter(s) must present a 10 minute presentation at the conference, followed by 3 minutes of Q&A
  • The presentation will be scheduled in a concurrent session with other Quick Bites submitted in the same sub-theme
  • All presenters participating in the presentation must register and pay the required fee to attend the conference.

WORKSHOPS

Workshops should be interactive and focus on a theme emphasising practical solutions. We are hoping to get people who wish to teach others some skills and pass on knowledge and practical steps they have taken to improve their services and/or improve the experience of the students. 

Workshops should involve a significant degree of participation from those in attendance. It is not meant to be a lecture.

  • Submission requires a 250-word abstract overview of the workshop.
  • If accepted the presenter(s) must present a 60 or 90-minute workshop during the conference program
  • All facilitators participating in the workshop must register and pay the required fee to attend the conference.

Post-Conference Publishing

Presentations (live and pre-recorded) will be made available to registered delegates for viewing in the 2021 ISANA Online Conference Portal following the conference unless you advise otherwise. Any additional files authors choose to share, as well as live Q & A/panel discussions, will also be available to view during and after the presentation. Access to the Portal will be password protected and limited to conference registrants.

Copyright

If presentations are to be used or published in any other format or forum, your specific consent will be requested. Please ensure you have permission to use any images, music or content within your presentation. If you do not have copyright permission, your presentation will not be able to be used or published. Do not include any images copied from the internet.

Copyright Ownership

Consenting to have your presentation available in the portal or used in an alternative publication will not affect your ownership rights. The conference committee or Conference Design will not acquire the ownership rights of your presentation should you agree for it to be included or used.

Will people be able to record or download my presentation?

During the registration process, delegates must acknowledge and agree to the virtual conference Terms & Conditions, which include strict rules around unauthorised photography and recording of convention material. While these measures can be taken, we cannot enforce this rule in an online environment. The assumption should be made that participants may indeed take unauthorised photographs, screenshots, audio, or video recordings, therefore you may wish to adjust the content of your presentation accordingly.
