We know that the only constant is change. This session will expose delegates to possible future scenarios for international education , globally, nationally and right here in Queensland. The session will draw on multiple data sets to show potential scenarios, offer some suggestions for managing through change and link all this to the investments being made in Queensland under the International Education and Training Strategy to Advance Queensland 2016-2026.
