(2) Student Success: thriving and succeeding beyond 2020s challenges

Positioning students for future success won’t come from just talking about it. It’ll take going all hands in – and not being afraid to get them dirty in the process. This year, more than any other, we have been challenged to roll up our sleeves and adapt our learning and teaching practices to ensure student success in a rapidly changing world. We are required to prepare students for an uncertain post-COVID world, one where graduates will require resilience, drive and a growth mindset to positively impact the world around them.

2020 has delivered unprecedented challenges and opportunities to rethink and evolve our learning and teaching. This stream allows you to share your learning and teaching practices that position students for future success, because it’s not what we say that makes a difference, it’s what we do. These learning and teaching practices could include hands-on student experiences, workplace learning, collaborative learning opportunities, community, industry and professional partnerships and those designed to support students’ development of professional identity. As this stream is about what we do, you are also encouraged to share your creativity and challenges you encountered along the way, things that didn’t work so well and those that did.
