LJMU AUA Network

Download our LJMU AUA Network 2018/19 Event Activity Overview

The LJMU AUA Network as a communication and development platform for our AUA members and potential members to engage with each other and enhance their CPD.

During each academic year the LJMU AUA Network will host nine one hour monthly networking forum events, each based on one of the Professional Behaviours from the AUA CPD Framework. They will run from September to May, concluding with a tenth session to be held in the annual Professional Services Conference (PSC) in June. Each forum will be held during lunchtime 12pm to 1.30pm to enable any staff to eat their lunch during it if they wish.

AUA

The tenth session at the PSC will provide members of the Network (and non-members wanting to engage) the opportunity to review the LJMU AUA Network’s impact over the last year and plan for the next year; contributing to the development of overall AUA strategy and objectives.

AUA members will also be given the opportunity to request sessions and development activities on particular areas of interest to them. Members will be encouraged to get involved with the design and delivery of sessions and events to further enhance their CPD. 

Three of the sessions will give members the opportunity to win an LJMU AUA CPD Award for development related activities, voted for by attending members; the AUA North West Network are funding the Awards.

Event Programmes

The monthly lunchtime forums will be one hour long, be based on a particular AUA Professional Behaviour and may feature:

  • A presentation/talk/activity from a guest speaker with expertise in that area
  • A presentation/talk/activity from an AUA member to share their work, best practice or reflections in that area
  • A development activity to enhance members’ ability to impact their own work, others’ work and help colleagues with their development for that area
  • Time for discussion and networking
  • A development competition for an LJMU AUA CPD Award
