AHEIA Training Network Groups are a great way for members to come together to learn, collaborate, and network.
We are happy to facilitate these three training network groups for our members and include:
Below you will find more information about each individual training network group and meeting details.
The AHEIA (Organisational Development) OD Network was established in 2013, which evolved from a meeting of Directors of Organisation Development held at the Pan Pacific Hotel, Perth, on 31 October 2013.
Before establishing the Organisational Development Network, there were other L&D (Learning & Development) networks across the sector, however, we need clarification on the details.
This inaugural 2013 AHEIA Organisational Development Network meeting was attended by the Organisational Development Managers from Australian Catholic University, Curtin University, Charles Darwin University, University of Canberra, University of South Australia, the University of Western Sydney (now Western Sydney University), and Victoria University.
In the following months, Tony Brown, Senior Consultant, Leadership, Curtin University (at the time), and Association for Tertiary Education Management (ATEM) Institutional Coordinator welcomed Gerard to the Australasian Higher Education Developers (AHED) Network and suggested that Gerard speak with Paul Abela, the then Executive Director of ATEM.
Since this time, ATEM and AHEIA have partnered to facilitate an annual Organisational Development Symposium.
The AHEIA OD Network meets virtually four times a year (quarterly) for 90 minutes. It comes together for an Annual Organisational Development Symposium and extraordinary meetings with guest presenters.
Network members support each other with Organisational Development – information sharing, collaboration, and presenting research and projects.
The OD Network has over eighty members from 33 universities across Australia.
In late 2020, Kristie Husk, Manager, Talent, and Employee Experience, at Federation University, and Stacey Kelly, Manager of Talent Acquisition at Deakin University (at the time), contacted Gerard Grant to enquire about the establishment of a Talent Acquisition, Recruitment, and Employee Experience network.
Kristie and Stacey had heard about the AHEIA Organisational Development Network and believed it would be valuable to establish a network with their peers. An inaugural meeting of TAREE practitioners was held on 24 November 2020.
With a focus on discussion of challenges and opportunities the sector is facing, the purpose of the TAREE network community is to share information. And assist members in developing and implementing practical tools and strategies to support recruitment, talent acquisition, and employee experience teams to continue to work effectively now and into the future.
The HE TAREE Network meets virtually six times a year (bi-monthly) for 90 minutes to collaborate on the talent acquisition and employee experience challenges and opportunities the sector faces. Meetings are co-chaired on a rotational basis by two network members.
The network has 35 members from 23 universities across Australia and New Zealand.
The AHEIA Strategic Workforce Planning Network (SWP) was established in May 2021 following a request by Carlie McQuillan, Strategic Workforce Planning Specialist (at the time), the University of Newcastle, to Gerard Grant, Manager Learning and Development, AHEIA.
The inaugural meeting of the group was held on 17 June 2021.
Members of the AHEIA Network Communities:
The AHEIA Strategic Workforce Planning Network meets virtually four times a year (quarterly) for 90 minutes, providing an opportunity for workforce planning practitioners to meet with colleagues in similar roles across the sector, collaborate on resource development, and share information, experience, and resources. The network supports members to embed SWP within their university.
The network currently has 25 members from 13 universities across Australia.
