In the spirit of reconciliation ACUADS acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
In late 2023, the Voice, will be put to Australians in a referendum.
ACUADS supports the active engagement in this historic moment for our country where we will be asked to change the Constitution recognising the First Peoples of Australia by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.
To understand what the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice will do, please visit the Australian Government Voice website. Each of our respective universities represented by ACUADS are also useful resources to support your thinking.
2023 ACUADS Conference
In 2018, a study for the World Economic Forum, The Future of Jobs Report 2020, projected that by 2022 ‘analytical thinking and innovation, active learning and learning strategies, creativity, originality and initiative’ would be three of the most important skills for the global workforce. This agenda has been highly influential for education policy in the intervening years, for example in the proliferation of STEAM approaches to teaching, learning and research. Understood as an interdisciplinary approach, a role of the creative arts and design was seemingly to bring ‘creativity’ to the wider tertiary sector through an ‘interdisciplinary imagination’ for the benefit of industry and, ultimately, society.
