Our conversations with you and member-led strategic advisory groups have confirmed your wish for us to target our support in sustainability, structural inequality and hybrid operating models. You have asked us to focus on helping you address these priorities:
helping to rethink online pedagogy and factors impacting on student success
creating and sustaining an inclusive institution
transitions, retention and progression for the ‘Covid generation’
maintaining and nurturing organisational wellbeing
developing institutions and staff capability for a post-Covid environment.
In large part, we will bring this focus to life through our ‘Connect Benefit Series’ which is designed to bring members together to work with us in co-creating and sharing innovative solutions to contemporary challenges.
A full outline of the 2021-22 member benefits package can be found below*.
