Mike and Gordon recently presented a symposium at the ascilite Conference in Wellington, New Zealand. The symposium titled 'Exploring the Challenges of Network Leadership in Australasian Tertiary Associations' attracted a small but engaged audience who provided some critical feedback on the project.
It was interesting to note the lack of awareness and understanding regarding the Good Practice Reports, validating the Network's upcoming activities in promoting their value and use in 2013. If you would like to access the ALTC Good Practice Reports, these are available on the OLT Website. Questions about the value of surveying members of partner associations was also raised, however, the idea of using a small number of targeted questions was seen as an effective way forward. Additionally, it was suggested that at the end of the funded NATA project a council of partner association representatives be established.
