The 2018 Victorian University Directors of IT (VDIT) Forum continues the tradition of showcasing, promoting and advancing excellence in the application of ICT in the higher education & research sectors in Victoria, Tasmania and more broadly. The agenda brings together experts from both within and outside the University sector with a range of thought-provoking presentations and a student panel session.
Plenary sessions will include talks from:
- Sue Elliott, Deputy Vice-Chancellor & Vice-President (Education) Monash University;
- Richard Cawood, Director Strategy, Ernst Young & principal author of the EY report: Can the Universities of Today Lead Learning for Tomorrow?;
- Professor Richard Constantine, Vice President Students, Infrastructure and Digital Technologies Victoria University.
In addition, a number of concurrent sessions will cover issues such as introducing new educational models (Victoria University); BI & predictive analytics; leading edge learning space innovation; the future of ICT support to research; experience with a University application suite review; and a case study of a very large scale wifi transition & roll out.
