We are pleased to extend an invitation to you and your university to nominate outstanding academic developers to participate in the Advancing Academic Development Event and Good Practice Awards, to be held 6 November at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane.

• Nominations are now open for your university to submit outstanding academic development practices for the 2019 Australasian Academic Development Good Practice Awards. All finalists will be invited to attend and present their good practices at the Advancing Academic Development Event, where award recipients will be announced.
• Registrations are also now open for academic developers from your institution to participate in the Advancing Academic Development Event. This event is an opportunity for your academic developers to participate in professional development, network, share, and shape academic development practice across the sector.

The 2019 awards and event follow the highly successful inaugural Advancing Academic Development Event and Good Practice Awards in 2018. Previous attendees highlighted numerous benefits for their professional development. Highlights including videos of finalists’ presentations can be viewed at advancingacademicdevelopment.net

The event is supported by The Council of Australasian University Leaders in Learning and Teaching (CAULLT) and the Queensland Branch of HERDSA. Thanks to this generosity, there is no registration fee for attendees from Australasian universities for this event. The attached documents provide information on registration and Australasian Academic Development Good Practice Awards submission processes. We strongly encourage your organisation to support nominations and attendance. Registration and nominations forms are at https://www.advancingacademicdevelopment.net/

We look forward to meeting your university’s delegates in November as we share and recognise good practice in academic development across Australia.
