The VDC has a long and proud tradition of providing one of Australia’s leading Teaching and Learning Conferences. It is a highly regarded and anticipated annual event within the VET sector. At VDC News, we will look to capture the essence and messages of the conference for our readers too.
All of us in VET faced uncertain times during 2020 and 2021, so this VDC Conference will celebrate how our sector managed to overcome significant challenges that faced it and how it can now look forward to re-emerging stronger and better. The VET sector – and its providers in particular – demonstrated their resilience by reworking teaching and business models and embracing remote learning and working. This has seen adaptable strategies coupled with innovation as RTO staff find new ways to support and engage learners. VET professionals rose to the challenges and now it is time to re-emerge.
The 17th Teaching & Learning Conference will be conducted online on 17 and 18 November 2022.
Readers can register here to attend.
