Selection criteria include Innovation, Cleverness, Problem Solving and Benefit to the organisation in the areas of technical solutions, projects delivery, AV administration processes and AV strategic initiatives. Entries should include high quality images of the project and examples of the work done.

Previous winner Hayden Leiper, University of the Sunshine Coast:

“The Conference Presentation Scholarship awarded to me by the AETM at the 2017 annual conference has provided great value to me personally, and to the University of the Sunshine Coast.

By supporting my attendance at the 2018 UBTech Conference and InfoComm show in Las Vegas, the AETM enabled me to bring a wealth of technical design ideas, collaborative learning concepts, and audio-visual product information back to USC.

This professional development opportunity would not otherwise have been possible, and I’m confident USC will realise tangible benefits in the AV space as a direct result of the AETM’s support.

The AETM’s commitment to furthering the professional development of its members is commendable, contributing greatly to the enhancement of professional standards of practice in audio-visual and education technology management.”
