Call for Presenters:  VDC 2017 Teaching and Learning Conference

VDC is calling for presenters for a limited number of workshops at the 2017 VDC Teaching & Learning Conference being held on 7 & 8 September at the RACV Torquay Resort in Victoria. The theme of the conference this year is Connect Collaborate Capture. As technology is constantly evolving, we need to connect with technology, master its uses and utilise it to support educational design in training. Our interactions require collaboration with industry partners in order to remain current, address industry needs and provide quality training. We will also explore how educators manage to capture student imagination, keeping them engaged and encourage voracity for learning. Click here to submit an application.
