Defining the Future of Education symposium 2023, featuring Professor Grady Venvile

Defining the Future of Education at ANU

Last Wednesday the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Professor Grady Venville, hosted the University’s Future of Education Symposium. The first event in a series, it featured over 30 panellists and presenters and attracted over 150 attendees, all united by a shared passion for driving forward the ANU by 2025 Strategic Plan and its learning and teaching goals.

The event was themed around the University’s three newly articulated graduate attributes and the diverse ways these can be embedded into education, technology and pedagogy. The captivating presentations and panel discussions from both students, academics and professional staff offered ideas and examples in practice and presented a vision for a more adaptive learning experience at ANU in the future. The Symposium was a great opportunity for academics, professional staff and students across the disciplines to meet, share and learn from each other.

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) also announced on Wednesday that grants will be offered to support innovative approaches to learning and teaching – so watch this space for details on how to apply. Details of future events aimed to build upon the conversations from the Symposium are soon to be announced, so be sure to visit the Symposium website to keep up to date and secure your spot.
