Join us in Hobart for the 30th AAIR Annual Forum! Australia’s most southern state, rich in history, culture and wild by nature. Hobart provides the perfect setting for the 2019 Forum, Intuitional Research: The Devil is in the Detail. We invite you to submit an abstract and be part of the captivating program from 11-13 November in beautiful Hobart, Tasmania – voted the one of the world’s top global travel destinations!
The Forum program is guaranteed to challenge and excite as specialists share their rich experience, discuss key topics and strategize in response to an ever-changing higher education sector. Themes encourage speakers to think about and question the value of higher education and research and the ever-changing role of the institutional researcher. Evidence based strategic planning and continuous quality improvement supported by a solid survey and evaluations framework are on the agenda. All of this is underpinned by business intelligence, analytics, visualisation and modelling.
Pre-Forum workshops and Special Interest Groups will run on the day prior to the main Forum sessions including a full day survey manager’s workshop. AAIR welcomes new and experienced presenters and a presenter briefing tailored to new presenters will be held on the 11th November. As always, there will be plenty of networking opportunities including the welcome reception and dinner both to be held at uniquely Hobart venues.
Hobart itself is a packed agenda and the perfect location to host the Annual Forum as we tackle the challenges and complexities we face as institutional researchers. Hobart’s waterfront precinct is certainly abuzz, with old pubs alongside new craft-beer bars, myriad cafes, museums, festivals, ferries, fishing boats, yachts, accommodation and a floating pier upholding fine restaurants…all of it washed with sea-salty charm and a sense of history.
AAIR has formed valued relationships with sponsors who have participated in the Forum for many years and have become a part of the AAIR community. We look forward to continuing these relationships and welcoming new supporters to the event. Take the opportunity to speak with these vendors as often they’re working closely with many of your colleagues in other institutions.
Having the reputation of being the leading institutional research event in Australasia, the AAIR Forum is an ideal event for you to expand your knowledge in the sector. Join with the many institutions who continue to support the Forum and enjoy what we anticipate to be an exceptional event.
