A panel on College life including professionals who work in the field, as well as current students and college graduates from both Australia and overseas. They will discuss their experiences, how it shapes/shaped them and what benefits there are, as well as the challenges, compared to living at home. We would like to present the difference between the USA/Canada and other societies, where this is a rite of passage, and compare this with Australia, where it is far from the norm. Allison Conyer will speak on the social implications this has, as an educator passionate about young adult education and development.
