Reimagining Education: Where Does VET's Strength Lie in the Accord Conversation
As the Australian Universities Accord aims to reshape higher education, it's paramount that the distinctive strengths of Vocational Education and Training (VET) aren't overshadowed or misunderstood by the traditionally university-focused discourse. While the Accord signifies change, how might it inadvertently miss the unique attributes and value VET brings to the educational landscape?
This panel discussion seeks to spotlight VET's strengths, challenging potential biases and gaps in the current dialogue.
Hosted by: Natasha Arthars
Panel Members: Robin Shreeve, Jenny Dodd and Claire Field

This event will be hosted by the Future of VET Curriculum Project team, a group of VET researchers associated with Griffith and Victoria universities. Our team has commenced a long-term program of work aimed at understanding how innovative training providers span the gap between rigid industry standards and responsive learning. We define curriculum as the stuff that fills this gap - the design, organisation and other factors that determine the experience of learning. We believe that in disruptive times it is essential that the VET sector learns from its innovative educators and shares knowledge of how to provide the skills learners need to thrive and contribute to sustainable industries and communities.
Project Director, Steven Hodge from Griffith University will open the event and introduce MC, Hugh Guthrie, and guests representing four perspectives on the VET learning ecosystem:

Applied Research - Henry Pook.
It has been almost a decade since the idea of TAFE-based research was heralded as part of the VET landscape. Fashioned to focus of the applied nature of research projects, and firmly embedded in an industry context, these early steps in research have yielded considerable achievements and provided the context for future development: we now look to extend and enliven the possibilities of applied research. Holmesglen OctoberVET’23: ‘the path ahead’, presents several research projects to showcase some of these new directions in TAFE-based research. It will be conducted both face-to face and through Microsoft teams.
