The ACEN Research Conversations are back again in 2020!

Facilitated through the ACEN NSW/ACT Chapter and ACEN Professional Development and Resources committee, this is a friendly, informal gathering of like-minded practitioners and scholars interested in furthering our knowledge of WIL scholarship, research and practice. The group meets face-to-face through Zoom to discuss thoughts, insights and practical applications related to a nominated WIL journal article or topic.

In 2020 we have locked in FOUR dates for us to share practice and discuss WIL research – see dates below.

This year we are sticking to our format with an article to read, an invited author/expert, and time for discussions in small groups. In addition to our usual one-hour program, we are also inviting you to stick around (if you’re interested) for an additional half hour to continue conversations with the author/ expert directly. We welcome participation from our Global WIL partner networks such as NZACE and CEWIL.
