Teaching in vocational education: Industry experts to adult educators
Five hour workshop | $140 + GST
About the workshop
The five-hour public workshop-seminar supports both new and experienced educators to discuss, critically reflect and explore models of good practice that will help them to:
- Apply their expert thinking to the development, teaching, assessment and evaluation of their teaching work
- Create learning that is a good fit for students and their destination roles.
This seminar makes reference to the new Adult and Tertiary Teaching qualifications and provides a good introduction for those embarking on these.

Teachers who are experts in their vocations, professions or fields of study, who want to build their understanding and capability in teaching will find this publication of value.
Who should attend
New and experienced teachers in tertiary education - including vocational educators, tutors and lecturers keen to develop new strategies, work with peers, reflect on their experiences and share thinking.
