This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

The Talloires Network Leaders Conference (TNLC2021) is a global movement-building event for universities and the community sector to critically reflect on the power and responsibility of engaged universities to work together - and in partnership with communities - to sustainably and equitably address global challenges.

Due to the time difference (TNLC2021 is being hosted in Boston, United States), on Friday 1 October the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is hosting an online event hub for Australian universities.

These free online livestreams are open to universities nationally, including staff, students, and their community partners. We invite you to join us for all, or any part, of our full day online conference.

We strongly encourage you to also register for the international conference, to receive access to on-demand content and recordings from TNLC2021 and other regional hubs. Register here.

  • Acknowledgement of Country
  • The opening panel will cross live to TNLC21 to join international colleagues as we launch the ‘Network for Community Engagement and Carnegie Classification Australia.’ The Carnegie Community Engagement Classification, long considered the international gold standard for demonstrating university-community engagement, will offer Australian universities an international platform to celebrate and share good practice from across the sector. The Network is also launching a collaboratively designed Community of Practice around engaged scholarship for universities and their partners.

10.00am - 11.15am | How to do it right? Community-engaged learning, work-integrated learning, and engaged scholarship in Australia

Universities, government, and the social sector have a long history of contributing to the public good. When they come together in collaboration, their impact and effectiveness are magnified. Together, they gain real traction to resolve complex societal challenges. This panel will discuss the role of each sector in building impact, the challenges they face, and the importance of cross-sector partnerships.

Speakers: Jihad Dib MP (Member for Lakemba), Cassandra Goldie (CEO, ACOSS), Prof James Arvanitakis (Executive Director, Australian American Fulbright Commission), facilitated by Verity Firth (Executive Director, Social Justice, UTS).
