UPCOMING VDC PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
19 September 2017
The value of great storytelling cannot be underestimated; Adam Voight captivated the VDC 2017 Teaching and Learning Conference participants with tales of reaching out and connecting students and how sometimes small actions can have a huge impact on both students and the broader community. Kieran Murrihy focussed on future possibilities but also highlighted that the future is now, and we need to embrace it. Being strong players in a highly competitive industry requires flexibility, resilience, and a willingness to explore new methods of storytelling. Jordana Borensztajn enthralled the audience with possibilities to reach out through social media and connect with new audiences and ideas, both endless and exciting.
The Conference provided ideas, tools and means to be flexible, resilient and open to new ideas and ways of delivering education and training. The future is now, and we can embrace it.
The Presentations and other highlights are now available on our website here

Trainers who bring high quality, customised training to workplaces get a personal and professional lift from contributing to employees’ confidence and capabilities, and to an employer’s continued viability. RTOs get other dividends too, like return business and third party endorsements.[Read More]
The teacher’s voice can sometimes go unheard in the midst of vigorous debates about policy and strategy and VET system structures and training package content. Those debates often leave little room for dwelling on immediate and day-to-day concerns of teachers, the great delights of teaching, and the sense of belonging to a profession with purpose.[Read More]
The World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics (WFCP) was formed in 2002 in Melbourne. Today it brings together some 4,000 professional and technical education and training providers across the globe.
(Pushing our local Australian barrow for a moment – the CEO of TAFE Director’s Australia, Craig Robertson, has recently joined the WFCP’s Board. And in late 2018, the WCFP’s ninth bi-annual World Congress will be held in Melbourne.)[Read More]
