During 2014, the Queensland University Directors of Information Technology (QUDIT) established an ICT Staff Development Working Group. Broadly speaking, the intent is to maintain a vibrant community-of-practice for professional development purposes, and also to progress collaborative initiatives to benefit QUDIT members. This THETA session will provide a focal point for the working group to engage among themselves and even wider with stakeholders outside Queensland. The session should be of interest to anyone who has responsibility and interest in ICT Staff development to the higher education and research sector. The session will be facilitated to flexibly direct discussion to “hot” topics that emerge during delivery of 3-4 lightning round presentations from different universities i.e.:
- Paul Nielsen – “Processes used to create an IT Professional Training Program at The University of Queensland ;
- Shaune Sinclair – “The CQ University IT Department’s Leadership Development Programme – A mini case-study”.
