EDITION 12 - 2019
Digital technologies like artificial intelligence, robotics and automation are really changing the nature of work.
This issue of VDC News focuses on the digital economy and is futures focused. It builds on an article in the last issue summarising a report from Deloittes.
Another article in this issue looks at a recently published NCVER report on digital skills “and the capacity of the VET system to effectively meet this growing need.”
In this article we focus on digital technologies again through the latest report from Sean Gallagher, the Director of Swinburne University’s Centre for the New Workforce.
In previous issues we have looked at possible changes to tertiary education in Australia.
What has the recent review of post-18 education in the UK released in May this year say needs to change there?
Why look at this?
Simply because so much of what we do in Australia has drawn inspiration from practices in the UK. This is, after all, the country that inspired our move to competency-based training!
