  • Experience the passion and commitment of experiential educators offering co-curriculum programmes that impact through exemplars from across the world. 
  • Contribute to collating purposeful practices and pointers for increasing teaching and learning effectiveness in the co-curriculum domain.
  • Connect nationally as well as internationally with co-curriculum experiential educators in forming networked learning communities 
  • Contribute to and engage with diverse views and collective future visions in shaping pathways for transformative teaching and learning within the co-curriculum domain.
  • Explore the embedding of responsible research and innovation practices towards developing knowledge, skills and attitudes for research within the co-curriculum domain for knowledge creation.
