2 months to go…


With just over two months to go, the number of registrations for this year’s L&T Symposium is now over 160 – it’s going to be big! If you’re a BJBS permanent or invited sessional academic and haven’t yet registered then take a two-minute break from finalising 201930 grades and 201960 outlines to click on the registration button above. Whilst you’re taking a break, check out some of the workshops we’ve got planned and why not consider making a submission to the UNsymposium? And if you are coming, you might want to bring something a little bit fancy to wear. Read on to find out why.

If you are a CSU staff member requiring travel and accommodation, there’ll be a link to the CSU domestic travel form on the registration form. Make sure you follow the steps. For those in schools with pre-symposium meetings, check with your school office about the details and travel arrangements.

Pre-symposium seminar

Speaking of pre-symposium, our keynote speaker Geoff Scott has kindly agreed to run a seminar from around 10:30 am on Thursday 29 August, open to all at CSU and the wider community, on social entrepreneurship education and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. In this seminar, Geoff will highlight current initiatives around the world focused on building social entrepreneurship into the curriculum of universities and colleges. Particular emphasis will be given to how tertiary education institutions are now leading the way in helping their countries systematically address the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals using social entrepreneurship projects in their learning programs and community engagement activities. Of course, many of you won’t be able to make it but if you’re not attending a pre-symposium school meeting and/or know others in the same boat then save that timeslot and spread the word! Location details to follow.

Professional photo shoot

Eagle-eyed readers of the draft program may have noticed the mention of a photo shoot during the pre-dinner drinks session on Thursday 30 August. That’s right we thought it was a great opportunity to update staff profile photos with a more professional and current look, so make sure you leave the trackie dacks and hoodie at home that day!
