Education Symposium 2020
2020 has been a year unlike any other in terms of the natural disasters and disruptions that rural, regional and remote communities have faced. The effects of bushfires and floods have been compounded by the social, economic and health impacts of a global pandemic.
In choosing the theme ‘Disruption, Adaptation and Resilience in Education’ we wanted to acknowledge the human cost of all of these disrupting forces, but also provide the opportunity to honour the adaptation and resilience that is so often evident in the character of rural, regional and remote people and communities.
This year's Symposium will build skills and give practical advice on, and examples of, what's been going on across the School. You'll hear from colleagues about their challenges and triumphs and have opportunities to join forces with others to discuss, appraise and remedy topics and issues that affect us all. The Symposium aims to increase your confidence and give you time to network with colleagues from the School, University and clinical areas.
Our featured speakers are Adjunct Professor, Dr Ruth Stewart, National Rural Health Commissioner and Professor Chris Bain, Professor of Practice in Digital Health in the Faculty of Information Technology, Monash University.
