This symposium provides an outstanding forum for academics, including early careers academics, postgraduate students, postdoctoral fellows and all researchers to present their research in the field of educating in particular in the fields of engineering and law education.

It is common ground that growing expectations has left academics attempting to perform a balancing act in their service of multiple masters.  Whilst this is true of all academics, teaching into a professional degree, such as law or engineering, only serves to add another master - the relevant professional association.  This Symposium aims to explore these issues from a range of perspectives and provide ways forward for academics to navigate this maze in order to have a successful and rewarding career.

There will be a full day of presentations and catering is provided.  Get in early to receive the early bird discount ($100 for students, $150 for staff)
