26th ANZSSA Conference on Student Engagement and Success

The 26th Australian and New Zealand Student Services Association (ANZSSA)  Conference will be held virtually from Tuesday 6 - Thursday 8 December 2022.  The 2021 conference explored solutions to recovery by taking the learnings from the past two years to reshape the ways educators and universities support students in the new environment. The key theme for this year's conference is Student Engagement and Success. It focuses on the theme of looking ahead and adapting ways of working, responding to and supporting the needs of tertiary learners to enable their ongoing engagement and success as the next decade unfolds.

Topics for the presentations and posters include student and staff wellbeing, sustaining partnerships for impactful change and enabling student engagement and connection in physical, digital and hybrid interactions. An overview of the conference program can be found here with registration options for single to mutliple sessions here.

The strategies and research outputs shared in the conference sessions can be applied to sustain and improve the wellbeing of staff and students by fostering better connections with learners.
