Former President, Kevin Ashford-Rowe (QUT), retired from the position having served the maximum allowable time under the Constitution of four years.

The remaining members of the committee are part way through their terms: A/P Simon Bedford (WSU, Treasurer), A/P Kogi Naidoo (CSU, Secretary), Professor Gayle Morris (AUT) and Dr Andrea Adam (UTas).

The first virtual AGM was considered a great success with delegates from all states and New Zealand attending.

Recognising Kevin’s contribution to CAULLT Marina said:

“A thank you too, and recognition of appreciation to our past President Professor Kevin Ashford-Rowe.

“As past President of CAULLT,  Kevin led the transformation of what had been CADAD (the Council of Australian Directors of Academic Development) to CAULLT, adopting an Australasian focus. The legacy of his leadership also saw new and strong networking links with the DVCA group and a Memorandum of Understanding ratified with TEQSA.

“The CAULLT executive and members thank Professor Ashford-Rowe for his contributions to leadership of learning and teaching.”
