VDC 2019 Teaching and Learning Conference

 2019 VDC teaching learning conference banner

Thursday 16 and Friday 17 May.

The theme of this year’s conference is how to Inspire, Trust and Educate for the benefit of others.

The conference program has been revamped and extended to two full days to include more interactive workshops facilitated by high-profile keynote presenters.

This provides attendees with the opportunity to attend more concurrent workshops over the two days and interact with all keynote presenters more intimately, by exploring their keynote concepts in a workshop format.

Due to the overwhelming response to his presentation at last year’s conference, Dr. Rich Allen (Green Light Education) has been invited back as MC for the Conference. Dr. Rich Allen will also be providing keynotes on connecting with people as well as workshops around interactive learning, both a major part of inspiring, trusting and educating as a teacher.

There are keynote presentations and workshops on Design Thinking from Dr Christine Murphy, a lecturer at RMIT University Graduate School of Business and Law and Swinburne University’s Graduate Schoolof Entrepreneurship.

Award winning entrepreneurial educator Marcus Powe will also be providing insights on how your creative ideas can become opportunities for positive change through his keynote and workshops.

Highly regarded and popular VDC presenters Anni Yaringa and Martin Probst complement the conference program by providing their insights on how VET providers and trainers can inspire and educate.

We are also pleased to be able to expand the Conference Dinner this year with the introduction of a networking drinks function as well as two comedic entertainers, Warren Jackman and Marty Ralph.
