The conference theme for 2017 was Connect, Collaborate, Capture creating a diverse and engaging conference program that focussed on Connecting with Technology, Collaborating with Industry and Capturing a Students Imagination.
Over 150 attendees from 70 organisations were treated to a most engaging program that included keynote presentations on the future of the industry collaboration with Futurist Kieran Murrihy, capturing your students’ attention with creative educational content with author, social media trainer and creative content consultant Jordana Borensztajn, and engagement versus disruption with Adam Voigt (who was also MC for the event). For the first time a lively debate was also held between the keynote speakers on the question ‘face to face is better than online delivery’.
Concurrent workshops on Connect, Collaborate, Capture topics were also held featuring popular VDC presenters Karen Dymke, Ann Baxter, Mick Gwyther and Sarah Phillips. We were also entertained by comedian Anthony ‘Lehmo” Lehmann from ABC TV Series Utopia and Gold 104.3 Radio as the Conference Dinner entertainment.
