20/20 Vision: Insights for the Decade Ahead

Event postponed until October 2021

The 34th annual Australian International Education Conference (AIEC) theme is “20/20 Vision: Insights for the Decade Ahead”, the program will feature world leading experts, unique social events and an exhibition, all hosted in and around the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre (GCCEC).

A new decade is upon us. What lessons have been learned over the past ten years and how will international education evolve as we move into the 2020s? How can best position our sector as we cast our gaze forward with energy and excitement?

Some of mega trends widely believed to have the greatest impact in the coming decade are climate change, resource depletion, deglobalisation, the growth of Africa, the ageing out of the OECD, the rise of AI and continued technological advancement and disruption. How will these trends effect international education and how do we best prepare? What new forms of global engagement are on the horizon? With the fourth industrial revolution upon us we need to learn to thrive in a transforming world.

This year’s AIEC provides an opportunity to reflect on the decade that has past, look to the future and view international education through fresh eyes. It provides a chance to gain new insights, make new connections and prepare for the decade ahead. AIEC 2020 will explore emerging opportunities, creative responses to challenges, the changing global landscape and the future nature and shape of our profession to ensure we can continue to make a positive and meaningful impact on the world.

The conference is the major opportunity each year for international education practitioners, teaching staff, researchers, policy makers and other stakeholders to learn about major industry trends and development and to network with Australian and international colleagues.

AIEC 2020 will once again be the leading event on the international education calendar in Australia. The call for proposals will open in February 2020.
