Dr Anitza Geneve

Fulbright Professional Scholar VET (2018) & Principal Consultant TAFE QLD

Dr. Geneve’s scholarly pursuits are focused on exploring pathways to equitable and inclusive participation in our rapidly changing, digital world.  Within the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector, she has been involved in a range of TAFE Queensland initiatives aimed at supporting the digital capability of both staff and students. Evidence based and applied projects include the development of the first TAFE Queensland Digital Literacy Staff Survey in 2017 and the digitisation of a number of student facing processes and products.

Dr. Geneve’s Fulbright research at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) delved into the development of a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) tailored to augment the digital literacy skills of Australian VET learners. On returning to Australia she has advocated the need for both a national Digital Literacy framework and a Digital Capability micro-credential that would be recognised as an entry level and pathway credential for learners and workers.  This work continues with TAFE Queensland and several groups aiming to support students’ pathways across educational and work sectors.

Widely recognised as an expert in the VET domain, Dr. Geneve has disseminated her insights at numerous esteemed national Australian conferences, with a particular emphasis on themes encompassing Digital Literacy frameworks and Digital Capability.
