Learning for Life and Work in a Complex World

One of the demands facing contemporary higher education is to prepare students for life and work in a complex and uncertain future. Students and staff are expected to have high levels of adaptability, excellent social and communications skills, and appropriate digital and information literacies, in order to address increasingly complex challenges in their chosen profession. Higher education providers are confronted with particular challenges:

How best to integrate learning more seamlessly with life and work

How to enhance opportunities offered for learning using digital technologies, both on-site and online.

HERDSA 2015 in Melbourne is designed to harness the wisdom of academics, professional and industry colleagues, and students to share new ways of thinking and practice to address these challenges. We invite you to present ideas, challenges, and solutions through this innovative Conference.
