Dates: 18 – 21 October 2016
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Host: IDP Education and the International Education Association of Australia (IEAA)
The Australian International Education Conference (AIEC) is the premier forum in Australia to connect people, ideas and research in international education. Since its first conference in 1987, connectivity has become woven into AIEC’s DNA. It is fitting, therefore, for AIEC to celebrate its 30th anniversary event around the theme of connectivity. This theme also recognises that international education is now an inextricable part of a hyper-connected world. Enhanced technology, global citizenship and greater leveraging of networks and partnerships all combine to influence the growth and success of the international education industry. AIEC 2016 will explore the concept of connectivity, its disruptions and opportunities, across three broad contexts: technology, people and partnerships.
Over 1200 international education practitioners, teaching staff, researchers, policy makers and other stakeholders will connect in Melbourne this October to learn about major industry trends and development and to network with Australian and international colleagues.
