Tertiary education is not immune to disruption. At this year's Campus Review conference, Futureproof 2016, expect to gain insights into:

  • Australia's most prolific speakers within the tertiary education sector; involve yourself in the discussion. Key speakers and presentations to be announced this week.
  • The trends that will impact tertiary education in the next decade, and the opportunities and challenges these present.
  • How the numbers will look in terms of funding and student enrolments, and the management of resources associated with demand.
  • The major concerns of the next wave of undergraduate and postgraduate students and how to attract and retain them.
  • The unrealised opportunities for tertiary education in technology and big data analytics that can develop R&D pathways with an innovating commercial sector.
  • How private educators and channel disruptors will move fast to take advantage of policy shifts, changing technologies and rapidly evolving workforce demands.
