Tuesday COVID Conversations

29 May 2020

In June and July 2020, ANZSSA will be holding weekly online COVID Conversations for each of our Professional Focus Groups. This is an opportunity for ANZSSA members in similar roles to take part in a professional discussion about our response to COVID19 – how it impacted students and staff in higher education institutions and changes made to delivery of student services. These conversations will focus on lessons learnt and future challenges and opportunities. You will hear from a panel of staff and students from Australia and Aotearoa (New Zealand) and will participate in conversations with colleagues. These Tuesday COVID conversations will be held on the Zoom platform 12noon – 1pm AEST. Check out the programme and register to attend any of these sessions that are of interest to you. There is no charge for ANZSSA members.

JANZSSA April 2020 now available

04 May 2020

JANZSSA Volume 28, Issue 1, 2020 is now available. JANZSSA is dedicated to research and enhancing professional practice and the promotion of excellence in the delivery of student services within the Australia and New Zealand post-secondary sectors. So if you work in student services and putting the student at the centre of your day is your goal then JANZSSA is your professional journal. JANZSSA is published twice yearly and relies heavily on the ANZSSA members and student services staff more broadly who submit articles for publication. Articles can be submitted for peer review to be published as a peer reviewed article or be submitted as an article that is approved for publication by the editorial process. Accepted articles via peer review are usually reporting on research, service or practice evaluation, or provided a substantial literature review. These articles may have been submitted for inclusion in an ANZSSA conference and been peer reviewed as part of that process. Articles that are not peer reviewed are usually outlining service innovation, best practice or making comment on service delivery, emerging practice or student needs. Book reviews are also welcomed. Submitting an article for publication in JANZSSA is encouraged as a professional development activity for anyone working in student services domains. Considerable support is offered by the editorial team so first time authors are encouraged to write about their work and the work of their service teams. The number of articles able to be published in the April issue (1) were impacted by the arrival of the CoVid-19 and the resultant disruption to business as usual within the HE sector. The April 2020 edition of JANZSSA has been published and we are delighted to report that we received and were able to publish four articles. Congratulations are due to those ANZSSA members who rose to the occasion in these challenging times.
