The city of Sydney, one of Australia’s multicultural centres, will provide a fitting meeting point for global educators, students and experts to come together for the 32nd Australian International Education Conference (AIEC) in October 2018.
The theme for the next AIEC, ‘Empowering a New Generation,’ will focus on how the international education sector can best support its students to realise their global ambitions in these times of rapid technological, socio-economic and geopolitical change.
Chief Executive Officer of IDP Education, Andrew Barkla, said next year’s conference will be a perfect continuation of the insightful conversations that characterised this year’s event in Hobart.
“This year’s Australian International Education Conference provided a platform for our sector to reinforce the positive contribution international students make to a socially diverse community, and to ensure we are taking every opportunity available to prepare students for life and employment in a multicultural world.
“We’re committed to continuing this conversation in Sydney next year, as we examine how technological, socio-economic and geopolitical forces are creating major change for students, teachers and the broader community,” Mr Barkla said.
More than 1,500 delegates from across the education and government sector, as well as NGOs and private providers, are expected to take part in a range of sessions, workshops and roundtables events at AIEC 2018, which will be held at the Sydney Convention Centre from 9 to 12 October 2018.
The conference will be jointly presented by IDP Education and the International Education Association of Australia.
