Introducing : Jason Renshaw
Keynote Presenter: Intersection of innovation and creativity
Innovation is both an over-used term and one that many educators feel – given the compliance and workload hurdles they need to overcome on a daily basis – isn’t necessarily something they have the remit, scope and time to embrace.
The international education market is very important to Australia. International students studying onshore are a key part of this, not only because of the fees they pay to study, but also their contribution to the broader economy while living here.
On 3 August, L H Martin launched a series of papers on VET issues. The topics covered were diverse, so probably there is something for everybody.
L H Martin’s Director, Professor Leo Goedegebuure introduced the papers and presented some overall findings from the series. Here is what was covered, and where you can find out more.
