The 2020 VDC Virtual Teaching & Learning Conference focuses on an area within the VET sector that is often seen as challenging, Engagement. VDC has listened to your feedback and designed highly interactive virtual workshops on engaging with industry.
The Keynote Presentations and Professional Learning Sessions with the theme of VET teaching and learning strategies for engaging with industry are:
Online Learning – Here for Good. So, what is ‘Good’?: A global pandemic has thrust online learning into our lives whether we were ready for it or not. In his Keynote address, Ryan O’Hare will explore the brief history of online learning, it’s effectiveness, institutional needs in this day and age, and the increasing consumer expectations post-COVID.
Utilising Effective Industry Engagement Strategies: In this session Kerri Buttery will review the current compliance requirements and provide a range of industry engagement strategies for different RTO settings and industries.
Enhancing Industry Engagement: This keynote from Julie-Anne Sheppard will delve into the ‘black box’ of successful industry engagement, and how organisations can enhance their industry engagement in practical and strategic steps.
