CQU National Forum
Gardens Theatre Foyer, Queensland University of Technology
21 April 2017 12:36 pm
The CQU National Forum will focus on effective strategies for evaluating and implementing equity related initiatives in higher education. The forum will include presentations by project team members from CQUniversity Australia, Federation University Australia, James Cook University, La Trobe University, the University of Newcastle, and the University of the Sunshine Coast reporting on the findings of a Commonwealth National Priorities Pool (NPP) funded project. The project focuses on effective strategies for planning, managing and evaluating Higher Education Participation and Partnerships Program (HEPPP) funded initiatives. The forum will also include a panel discussion exploring what we know about the relationship between equity and evaluation in higher education contexts in Australia.
The panel presenters will explain why it is important to strengthen evaluation processes in policy and practice contexts to improve higher education outcomes for priority equity groups. The discussion will draw on evidence relating to a detailed analysis of HEPPP projects; the development of an equity initiatives framework; and an exploratory study about evaluation in Indigenous higher education contexts. Please join us at this forthcoming national event to engage in robust and stimulating discussion, and contribute to the final recommendations and good practice guidelines of the NPPP funded project prior to submission to the Commonwealth.
