Two teams of three students will debate the affirmative and negative positions of the topic. They will be expected to prepare a 4 – 5 minutes speech with the opportunity to rehearse before the event. Speakers will be supported by a team mentor and OMI staff. Students are expected to commit to an initial meeting with OMI; a few hours of preparation time to meet and discuss the topic with teammates; and the 2 hours for the event.

Expected benefits for students include participation in an enjoyable and significant experience and the opportunity to expand their networks. Participants will develop transferable skills such as teamwork, communication, and analytical and research abilities and will receive a letter of acknowledgement from the Minister for Citizenship and Multicultural Interests.

Footage from the 2017 debate is available at https://www.omi.wa.gov.au/Resources/News/Pages/Harmony-Week-debate-explores-multicultural-Australia.aspx

If you or anyone you know would be suitable could you please ask them to contact me and send a brief bio and contact number as their expression of interest? The bio only needs to be a short paragraph telling us what you are studying, your interest in multiculturalism, and why they wish to participate? We are not expecting anything too onerous, so a few sentences will suffice. This will help us with finalising the debate panels.

Mental Health Support Services for International Students – Did you know?

Mental Health Support Services for International Students – Did you know?

Under the law (National Code) education providers must provide access to affordable mental health support services and, students must be told about this at orientation.

All providers should have this info listed on websites or hand books under “student support services” or “health and welfare”. Good providers regularly remind students about these services through various channels.

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.
