The Australian Centre for Student Equity and Success acknowledges Indigenous peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands on which our campuses are situated. With a history spanning 60,000 years as the original educators, Indigenous peoples hold a unique place in Australia. We recognise the importance of their knowledge and culture, and reflect the principles of participation, equity, and cultural respect in our work. We pay our respects to Elders past, present, and future, and consider it an honour to learn from our Indigenous colleagues, partners, and friends.

Event information

University Life: Being, Becoming, Belonging is an invitation to all who shape and enhance the lives of students and colleagues through the development and delivery of teaching and learning programs within and beyond the classroom.

This theme invites us all to reflect on the diverse roles that we play within our university communities. It is an opportunity to share, showcase, engage and celebrate how we have:

  • developed our university community’s self-efficacy, self-awareness and self-knowledge

  • supported and contributed to the wellbeing and lives of our students, our colleagues, our peers and friends within the various university communities that we belong to

  • utilised approaches that helped our university communities become more resilient through change and transformation

  • cultivated a sense of belonging around the pursuit of academic excellence, student interests or institutional affinity.

The WA Teaching and Learning Forum are very excited to have two prominent keynote speakers whose passions and interests in teaching and research connect to the Forum theme:

  • Professor Sally Kift
    transition pedagogies, CMM commissioning Editor ‘Needed Now in Teaching and Learning’
  • Dr Bep Uink (social impacts on adolescents, Indigenous student success in higher education, ARC Discovery Indigenous project)
