2012 A AIR Invitation to Participate ANNUAL FORUM 12-14 November

Terrigalfor| Institutional Research (AAIR) Forum Organising Committee On behalf of the Australasian Association may I extend a warm invitation to you to participate in the 22nd Annual AAIR Forum which will be held g.au12 – Wednesday 14 November 2012. orMonday ir.from w.aa at the Crowne Plaza, Terrigal on the ww NSW Central Coast AAIR is the peak body for institutional researchers in Australia and New Zealand and its annual Forum is run by practitioners, for practitioners. Because it explores current issues, many universities consider it a “must” for professional development and networking for their institutional research staff. The 2012 Forum will focus on the core business of AAIR, Institutional Research (IR). Whether you work in data warehousing, surveys, forecasting, planning or any of the many roles undertaken by our members, the 2012 AAIR Forum will provide relevant discussion from your perspective. Leading practitioners across the IR fields will explore the policy landscape, outline the latest challenges and developments and help shape your ideas and responses, confirming the Forum as the event that puts IR front and centre. Terrigal is centrally located between Newcastle to the north and Sydney to south. The 2012 Forum will let you experience the beautiful NSW Central Coast. Terrigal will provide you with some quiet reflective moments away from life’s other distractions, even if it’s just for that once a year event that is the AAIR Annual Forum. The 2012 Forum will start with the Welcome Drinks on Sunday night 11 November. The Forum sessions will run from Monday 12 to the afternoon of Wednesday 14 November. This new format means you avoid the airports on Friday evening and you won’t have to take the last plane out of Sydney. It will inspire and refresh delegates and send them home with new ways of tackling the challenges we deal with in Institutional Research. First time delegates and those who are new to IR will be provided with assistance and guidance through the 2012 Forum, starting from the Welcome Drinks on Sunday where the AAIR Executive team will help you to find your feet. Watch the Forum website as we release more details in the regular program updates. The AAIR Forum is a key event in our calendar and is made possible by the continuing support from our ongoing and new institutional and corporate partners. This support enables AAIR to offer the best experience to our delegates at a reasonable rate.

2012 AAIRM ANNUAL FORU

Whether it is the enticement of sun, sand and surf that attracts you or the possibility of learning more about your favourite IR topic, erThat’s for sure! you’re certain to gain much from time4atNov AAIRemb 2012. | 12-1 igalyour Terr

2012 A AIR ANNUAL FORUM Terrigal | 12-14 November

www.aair.org.au

Call for Abstracts We invite you to submit an abstract for consideration in the Forum program. Abstracts will be reviewed and presented within the program and published on the AAIR website along with the full papers from the participants who wish to submit under the “full paper” guidelines. Please note that it is not compulsory to submit a full paper. The 2012 Forum Organising Committee encourages delegates to submit abstracts for concurrent sessions focused on one or more topics across the full spectrum of “IR” activity, as well as broader reflections on the state of IR practice. The Organising Committee also invites abstracts that build on their own or others presentations at previous AAIR Forums to help grow the Association’s body of knowledge, and/or represent joint research between two or more institutions. To encourage engagement with a broad range of topics, two session formats will be available at the 2012 Forum:

2012 AAIRM

1.

30 minute presentation and discussion sessions (comprising 20 minutes presentation and 10 minutes question and answer), and

2.

60 minute workshops (comprising facilitated workshop).

ANNUAL FORU

Presentation sessions will be shorter than previous years to encourage delegates to present concise, 4 November 12-1 igal |may Terr focused presentations. This format be more appealing to first time presenters, who will be invited to attend a ‘presentation tips’ session early in the Forum. Workshop sessions are the preferred format for the exploration of national and international trends, consideration of new government policies or for structured sharing of current practice. Workshops will complement Special Interest Group (SIG) sessions, so should focus on topics unlikely to be discussed in depth in those sessions. (SIG sessions will focus on data warehousing/business intelligence, the Australian Graduate Survey, DIISRTE and TEC reporting/compliance, and student load management.) Example potential workshop topics include internal student surveys, Compacts and My University website and Impact of regulators (eg. TEQSA). Workshop facilitators will need to have some skills in group facilitation, and will be asked to provide a short written report on workshop outcomes following the Forum.
