We have almost reached the end of what must be our toughest year yet in Higher Education. I’m sure all of the community has been tested in ways you never imagined this year, whether it be dealing with technology change at an unprecedented speed, navigating significant changes to our roles and teams, or just battling to stay sane in a locked-down world. I would like to think that everyone’s connection in this community has been some help in some way to deal with one or more of these challenges, I know it has been for me.
Following the recent election, we welcome Warwick Calkin, Chief Digital & Information Officer, UWA as CAUDIT’s new Vice President and Vito Forte, Director - Digital and Campus Services & CIO, Edith Cowan University to the Executive Committee. An excellent group to be guiding CAUDIT into 2021!

In collaboration with PaceLearning, CAUDIT will facilitate a free, two-hour ‘Powering Up’ session for the alumni of the CAUDIT Managers Program.
The participants of the CAUDIT Managers Program (CMP) have come together to participate in their second round of‘ online group workshops. The sessions explored the themes of ‘Self Mastery’ with a greater focus on 'Resilience', the ‘Art of Influence’ and ‘Straight Talk’, all of which are crucial skills for effective managers to master.
With exposure to leadership foundations, techniques for coaching, building resilience, influencing, and, facilitating difficult conversations, participants are developing highly relevant skills as today's new and experienced managers.
