The 30th ISANA Annual Conference Announced (3-6 December 2019)

The 30th ISANA Annual Conference Announced (3-6 December 2019)

In December 2019, ISANA will hold its 30th Annual Conference. This is a milestone for the Association and for the development and delivery of international student services in Australia.

Since its first modest conference in Melbourne in 1989, ISANA has built a reputation as a body that has lead student-focussed research, knowledge creation and best practice in services to international students. It has built a supportive network and has held a major conference every year in either a major city, a regional centre or at a New Zealand venue in collaboration with ISANA New Zealand.

For three decades the conference has inspired practitioners to develop ground-breaking services and programs, and has always nurtured collaborative relationships with institutions, student bodies and community groups.

Each year, the Conference raises issues, examines major themes in international education from the perspective of students, international education professionals and related stakeholders. This focus ensures that delegates and the wider membership have access to landmark and innovative research and practice. It draws on a wide range of material and provides a national and international discussion.

The 2019 Conference will showcase ISANA’s work over 30 years, reflects on past achievements, celebrates contemporary practice and embraces challenges arising in the future. We invite you to participate by submitting
papers, workshops and stories to our special conference event.

Watch for the Call for papers soon, with a due date for peer reviewed and non-refereed abstracts on 24th May 2019.

About ACTiveNSW Support Café!

We are inviting important service providers, to each share a 5 minute presentation. You will then work your way through a series of designated conversation tables, where you will have an opportunity to spend some quality time with each provider. Through this Café style PD session, we aim to create a more personalised and intimate experience to better forge relationships between service providers and institutions, while allowing time for questions and discussions that otherwise may be difficult or unlikely to form. Stay around for our AGM and vote in the next year’s branch committee members – or nominate yourself for a role!

Cost: ISANA Members no-charge | Non-members $49.00

We hope to see you there!

Warm regards,

ACTiveNSW Branch Committee Members

In the news…

https://thepienews.com/news/isana-receives-grant-to-update-training/

The peak body for international student services in Australia, ISANA, has received an Enabling Growth and Innovation grantto update its online National Code training and provide wider access to the broader industry.

Selected as one of 14 EGI grant recipients, which provide $3m per year in government funding for projects created to support 2016’s National Strategy for International Education 2025, ISANA president Bronwyn Gilson said her organisation was excited to raise professional standards across Australia.

“There’s not one training that stretches right across for all those involved in the industry”

“It’s the one set of training that most new professionals in the area get to do,” she said.

“There’s not one that stretches right across for all those involved in the industry that may be in admissions, maybe in services or student welfare.”

The $128,00 grant will go towards updating ISANA’s currently existing online training and will look to make understanding the code more engaging.

The National Code, which was updated at the start of 2018, is the centrepiece of Australia’s regulatory frameworks to support international education, and outlines provider requirements across 11 standards, ranging from marketing requirements to engaging with education agents.

Gilson told The PIE News the new online training would be updated to reflect changes but added the structure would allow professionals to choose to access the information that is only relevant to them.

“If you only touch on international education, you can go through and do the basic tutorial and then there will be modules that sit behind that,” she said.

“If you want more information on the admission side you can go in and do that module.”

As part of creating the training, she said industry-wide consultation would take place and include the student voice to ensure all areas are covered.

A recent Centre for Global Higher Education has argued Australia will likely become the second most popular study destination by 2019.

Media Release: ISANA awarded funding to update and improve National Code Online Tutorial

Since 2007 ISANA has hosted an online tutorial covering Part D of the National Code, which assists in the understanding of the standards within the international education industry. The purpose of this online tutorial is to assist international education professionals to understand specific standards under the revised National Code. This tutorial has been especially useful as a staff training tool for those new to the international education industry.
Today Minister Birmingham announced $2.1m across 14 projects as part of the Enabling Growth and Innovation (EGI) Project.

ISANA is pleased to have been awarded $128,223 to upgrade and redesign the National Code Tutorial tool to bring it in line with recent changes to the National Code.

Speaking from the CISA conference

ISANA President Bronwyn Gilson said…
We are very excited to be able to make improvements and updates to such an important tool, over the last 14 years many new student services professionals have had their introduction to the National Code through the online tutorial and this will allow us to ensure that at a minimum there will be a basic level of understanding across the profession in Australia. It is essential that every person working in the sector understands and complies with the code and this will allow providers to be more confident of the level of understanding amongst their employees.”

This project is supported by the Australian International Education: Enabling Growth and Innovation project fund, Department of Education and Training. For further information, please visitwww.internationaleducation.qov.au.

Further details of the projects can be found at https://internationaleducation.gov.au/International-network/Australia/InternationalStrategy/EGIProjects/Pages/EGI-Projects.aspx
