OctoberVET 2016

For the ninth year running, RAVE (Researching Adult and Vocational Education) has hosted an ‘OctoberVET’ event. This year the Ballarat event took place at the SMB Campus in Lydiard St, central Ballarat on Tuesday 18th October. The theme was ‘Teaching, training and learning: VET’s true business.’

The keynote speakers reported on two major projects in this area, ‘Investigating quality teaching in the Victorian VET sector’(Project leader: Ruth Schubert, funded by the Victorian government), and ‘What makes a good VET teacher/trainer, and how do you get there?’ (Project leader: Erica Smith, funded by the Australian Research Council). There were four other presentations about VET teaching/training and learning, three of which had an international flavour.
