The ever-understated AHEIA’s annual conference is (virtually) on
While the Australian Higher Education Industrial Association represents most universities it keeps a low public profile, so word is sparse on what is happening at its annual, and this year on-line, conference.
But speakers and subjects suggest AHEIA priorities. Sarah McKinnon (Fair Work Commission) talks on dealing with applications on sexual harassment. Anne Bardoel (Swinburne U) suggests what working from home means for universities. Libby Lyons (Australian Catholic U) puts gender on the post pandemic agenda.
And CQU VC Nick Klomp (and colleagues) report on applying AHEIA’s programme for, “respectful, positive-behaviour cultures with zero tolerance for bullying.”
Andrew Norton (yes that Andrew Norton) briefs on the imminent state of the sector and Stephen Parker (ditto) suggests what will be on the Universities Australia 2030 conference programme.
And putting the i for industrial into the programme, Stuart Pill (Clayton Utz) will advise on the top five employment law issues.
