Welcome to the Professional Learning Conversations for Academic Leadership website.

This website has been created as part of the Professional Learning Conversations for Academic Leadership project at the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC). The project explored how a conversational approach can be used to engage emerging academic leaders (learning and teaching).

This website offers a range of resources to help guide good practice when implementing professional learning conversations across higher education. You can also find a snapshot of what a conversation can look like by exploring the sample conversation material.

If you would like to connect with the project leaders, simply contact us.


The project was led by Kylie Readman and Associate Professor Jennifer Rowe. Dr Maria Raciti and Jenny Nemeth completed the project team. The project team acknowledges the support of John Simpson for his excellent management of the project.

A very big thank-you to all the participants who were involved in the conversation series and made the project into the successful one that it was.
