Student experience takes centre stage at NZIEC 2017
Transforming international student experiences is at the heart of this year’s conference.
Delegates will gain insights from Study Auckland’s student experience transformation project, discover community support mechanisms to enhance your pastoral programmes and learn how to facilitate the successful education transitions of international students.
There are also sessions on how to foster collective leadership to encourage student wellbeing, how to challenge and motivate students, and how to equip yourself with teaching strategies to engage tertiary international students.
“We have the opportunity to deliver a unique and life-changing student experience in New Zealand,” says Hayley Shields, ENZ’s Student Experience Director.
“This year’s conference includes a broad range of sessions sharing best practice from around the country, and will be useful for institutions and regions seeking to enhance the experiences of international students throughout the student life cycle.”
This year’s conference also brings the voices of international students into the programme as never before. We will explore what current international students think about their New Zealand study experiences and learn from international student graduates about what worked and what didn’t as they transitioned to employment.
You’ll also find international students popping up throughout conference, including in Lian-Hong Brebner’s session ‘We just want to be included’.
Don’t forget to check out ISANA New Zealand’s breakout stream. ISANA have developed a comprehensive breakout programme with positive student experiences at the centre.
