Backpack to Briefcase: Sydney - Wednesday 22 May

Play The Social Media Game

Social media is only for your personal life, isn’t it? Unfortunately not. Decision makers will research candidates online before they offer opportunities. If you play the social media game right, you can maximise those chances and level up your career.

But where do you start apart from deleting and untagging those ‘drunk at a party’ photos? Do you need a website or just a LinkedIn Profile? How can you be one step ahead of the competition?

Join us for this interactive workshop to get insiders' tips and tricks on:

  • online and offline networking
  • the do’s and don’ts on social media
  • website design principles so you can build your digital archive and brand
  • making keywords do the work for you
  • digital literacy, competence and influence

Our experts, Sue Ellson and Rowena Ditzell will share their experiences in this interactive workshop and will provide a comprehensive handout with links to additional resources.

Following the workshop, you will have the opportunity to network with our guest speakers and your fellow Macquarie University alumni over canapés and a drink. One free drink will be provided, with a cash bar should you want to keep the conversation going.

When: Wednesday 22 May 2019, 6pm - 9pm
Where: Macquarie University City Campus, Level 24, Angel Place, 123 Pitt Street, Sydney
Price: Free. This event is proudly supported by Macquarie University. Canapés and a complimentary drink will be provided to all registered alumni attendees. Cash bar available
RSVP: Please register by Friday 17 May (unless booked out prior)

3rd Infants and Toddlers Conference - 19-20 July

A right to live - a right to thrive

How can infant-toddler educators uphold the human rights of our youngest children? What about the rights of educators and how do these impact on those of the child? How might ideas about human rights vary across communities and cultures?

In this conference, we bring together practitioners, researchers, and advocates to discuss and debate these questions and more. A packed program, including keynote addresses, presentations by educators and researchers, and discussion panels will ensure that there will be lively conversations and debate. In this way, we uphold our theme – A right to learn – A right to thrive – for both our youngest children and the dedicated professionals who are committed to their care and education.
