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.
