Kent’s Melbourne LEAD Ambassador Sharandeep Kaur was invited to attend the 19th International Student Advisers’ Network of Australia (ISANA) Victoria/Tasmania State Conference on Friday, 7th September 2018.
ISANA is an organisation that provides information, training and connections for international educators, student support staff and international students.
This year’s conference titled “Opportunity and Innovation: Industry Professionals Supporting International Students” presented new industry expert insights into improving the international student experience in areas as diverse as improving the student experience during Orientation week to app communication with students.
Sharandeep, together with Ryan Honner, Melbourne campus’ Academic Learning Support Coordinator, were given opportunity to develop new professional connections, learn new technology and new modes of engagement to benefit students.
Our KENT delegates learnt about how recent changes to Victoria’s rental laws impact on student tenancy rights as well as the issue of sexual violence and the support services that are available for international student victims.
The ISANA Conference was highly Interactive, innovative and stimulating with team building exercises which ignited creative thinking and a student led drama project by Be You Be Scene which encouraged students to share their own stories and foster resilience.
Kent Institute Australia is proud of Sharandeep and Ryan for representing us.
Want to be part of activities like these and represent Kent? We encourage you to participate in our in-campus events and activities to become a LEAD Ambassador and prepare you to achieve your goals in the future.
