THE-ICE VIPoE 2020 Workshops
Each year as part of the IPoE Forum programme, our valued Business Alliance Partners (BAP) conduct workshops for the benefit of our members. With the Forum being virtual in 2020, limits of attending staff have been eased, providing an exceptional opportunity for more representatives from our members to attend the VIPoE and associated workshops. The workshops this year have been specifically designed to enable colleagues working in similar operational areas to connect with each other and our BAPs, and to learn how to maximise the benefits from the products and services offered through these strategic alliances.

Hosco workshop: Hosco, Lobster Ink and THE-ICE – new partnership benefits – alumni employability tracking and online industry training courses for schools

John Lohr, the Director of Development at Hosco, will present the new THE-ICE and Hosco partnership and the benefits that will be available to all THE-ICE member institutions as well as additional information on the Lobster Ink online industry training courses which THE-ICE institutions can also take advantage of.
THE-ICE has joined forces with Hosco, the hospitality network to provide our member institutions worldwide with data that will detail the placement success of their students and graduates. Through this partnership, THE-ICE members will be able to keep track of their students’ and alumni’s employment status, role, department, and job location, among other information enabling them to map their career development. The inputs gathered will generate time-series data reports allowing members to monitor and benchmark their placement activities’ efficacy in order to keep improving their employment strategies.
In addition Hosco has become the officially licensed partner of Lobster Ink the worldwide leader in hospitality industry training. Lobster Ink offers over 1,400 online industry training courses which are used by most of the major corporate hospitality brands (Marriott, Hilton, Kempinski, Mandarin Oriental etc) to train their internal staff. Now via Hosco, schools can adopt this actual online industry learning content to support student online learning, supplement internship experiences, drive more admissions or build their own micro-certifications.

Higher Education Leadership Institute workshop: Learning Technology and Learning Engagement Trends for 2021 and beyond
Thursday, 29th October 2020, 7:15pm AEDT
A significant challenge to learning in virtual environments is maintaining learner engagement. Most educators have a number of conventional approaches for ensuring learners are engaged in physical classrooms and these are well known. However, many will not work in the virtual world.
In this presentation, HELI’s Dean Professor Clive Smallman, our CEO Dr Peter Ryan and Head of Communications, Alan Williams, take a look at the top learning technology and learning engagement trends that institutions can use to boost engagement in learning and teaching in 2021 and beyond
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning
- Big data and learning analytics
- Self-directed learning and learning experience platforms (LXPs)
- Virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR)
- Off-the-shelf eLearning: online content market places
- The ‘holy grail’: life-long learning platforms.
HELI will take 30 minutes to sketch the benefits of the technologies, before splitting into mastermind groups to see how participants think they might use this technology, and then coming back together for a final summary.
This workshop is recommended for: Academics, Researchers, Alumni and Education Administrators, Executive and Management staff seeking to understand the trends in technology in this space.
