00:00 VISUAL: RMIT NEXT Heading into Directions
00:07 VISUAL: Over the past 12 months, the RMIT community has shared their reflections on the changing world around us and what it could mean for RMIT.
00:14 VISUAL: Based on these reflections, here are some of the insights shaping the directions of RMIT’s next strategic decisions.
00:22 VISUAL: Together, we can build on these insights to explore the opportunities they present for RMIT through SIX DIRECTIONS... 1. Reflections 2. Directions 3. Strategy Development
00:27 VISUAL: ...and inform the development of RMIT’s next university strategy!
00:30 VISUAL: SO
00:33 VISUAL: Direction 1. A Mission-Led University
00:39 VISUAL: At RMIT we’re proud to be a leading university in Australia, Vietnam, a hub of research and innovation in Barcelona, and have a diverse network of global partnerships.
00:46 VISUAL: As we operate on lands and waters across the world, we continue the work of paying respects and growing deeper understandings among different cultures...
00:53 VISUAL: ...including the Woi Wurrung and Boon Wurrung language groups of the Eastern Kulin Nation on which RMIT was founded.
00:59 VISUAL: White RMIT has evolved, our purpose has remained constant: to enable diverse people and communities all around the world to access, adapt and thrive through education & research.
01:06 VISUAL: In Direction 1: We explore how RMIT can build on our strengths and networks to further our commitment to inclusion and innovation in a complex and fast-moving world.
01:15 VISUAL: Direction 2. A Lifelong Learning Revolution
01:19 VISUAL: The disruption and pace of change in the world right now means many industries are facing urgent skill gaps...
01:26 VISUAL: ...while many workers risk being left behind.
01:29 VISUAL: There’s growing momentum behind A ‘LIFELONG’ APPROACH TO LEARNING.
(That is... People continuously re-skilling & up-skilling through their adult lives to enhance their opportunities, livelihoods and wellbeing.)
01:37 VISUAL: Globally, this has seen education moving towards more flexible pathway options that make it easier to fit study in with: INDIVIDUAL CIRCUMSTANCES. WORK ROUTINES. PERSONAL CHOICES.
01:47 VISUAL: Governments are also urgently searching for ways to prioritise relevant skills development, support rapid training and grow cross-sector partnerships across regions, industry sectors and digital networks.
01:59 VISUAL: To thrive in this complex environment, RMIT students will need a distinct mix of:
TECHNICAL, HUMAN & COGNATIVE SKILLS
02:05 VISUAL: And as multi-sector university, RMIT has great potential to meet students’ needs at every step.
Postgraduate degrees. Vocational diplomas. Undergraduate degrees. Future skills program. Micro-creds. English language pathways.
02:11 VISUAL: In Direction 2: We can explore co-creating new education solutions, pathways and skillsets with government, industry & alumni that enable learners to thrive.
02:20 VISUAL: Direction 3. A new age of Hybrid Work & Learning
02:25 VISUAL: As more activities move online, there’s new ways to engage with education and work.
02:29 VISUAL: Instead of in-person lectures and didactic learning styles, students want flexibility and applied experiences with:
PEER GROUPS, INDUSTRY MENTORS & EXPERT NETWORKS
02:38 VISUAL: And it’s not just students... As many industries embrace a hybrid work style, new workflows and approaches are required to enable people to thrive across environments.
02:49 VISUAL: Our campus and precinct designs will need to keep evolving to ensure our spaces meet the community’s changing learning, working and social needs.
02:54 VISUAL: In Direction 3: We can explore the new ways of working and learning that meet diverse and changing needs and create outstanding experiences.
03:02 VISUAL: Direction 4. An Adaptive RMIT: Enabling our diverse people & communities
03:07 VISUAL: Now more than ever, we’re aware of the many social and political factors that can limit access to education.
03:11 VISUAL: We’ve seen RMIT ADAPT MANY TIMES to support our community through economic and industrial transformations.
03:18 VISUAL: ...and we know there will be MANY OPPORTUNITIES FOR RMIT TO ADAPT AGAIN in the years to come.
03:22 VISUAL: To be an adaptive institution, we must continuously learn from: OUR OWN NETWORKS & APPLIED RESEARCH...
03:27 VISUAL: ...AND THE WIDER SYSTEMS IN WHICH WE OPERATE
03:31 VISUAL: In Direction 4: We can explore how RMIT’s systems, culture, partnerships and ways of working can enable us to respond at pace to our communities.
03:39 VISUAL: Direction 5. An impact-driven approach to Research and Innovation
03:45 VISUAL: Amidst economic, societal and environmental challenges, we know discovery and innovation help our communities to adapt and thrive.
03:50 VISUAL: Around the world, we have a strong reputation for working with different governance institutions and communities to address distinct local and regional challenges.
03:58 VISUAL: Our knowledge-creating activities are embedded in the social and economic fabric of the cities where we operate, and they’re critical to our reputation as a research and educational institution.
04:08 VISUAL: In Direction 5: We can explore how to empower talented researchers through innovation ecosystems, working collaboratively to generate excellent research, applied innovation and impact.
04:17 VISUAL: Direction 6. An interconnected global & urban ecosystem
04:22 VISUAL: We are more connected than ever before across our global locations.
04:25 VISUAL: There’s opportunities to grow our international network, creating new global pathways...
04:32 VISUAL: ...and supporting sustainable growth, knowledge and impact in key markets such as South East Asia.
04:39 VISUAL: In Direction 6: We can explore how to build on our capability and experience in urban and global areas across Asia-Pacific and beyond, enriching the economic, cultural and social life in the areas where we operate.
04:49 VISUAL: Now we know the insights, WE CAN EXPLORE THE DIRECTIONS TOGETHER.
04:53 VISUAL: Over the next few months, you can read the Directions and give your input through the RMIT NEXT website and focussed discussions with your leaders...
05:00 VISUAL: Your input will guide the development of RMIT’s next university strategy!
