The project will connect Tourism & Hospitality staff and students with Event management, Commercial Cookery and Meat and Allied Services.

The project is sustainable in the long term as part of a whole of faculty work based learning initiative. This will enable teachers the time and resources to learn new online communication technologies and face to face action learning practices to share learning and trade pedagogical practices.

The project also links the VTE client/learner into the work based learning process leading to learning outcomes.

The project team will explore a variety of technologies to engage the client within the classroom and workplace. These technologies include but not limited to PDA’s, Web 2.0 technologies; blogs, wikis, video blogging, moblogging… The tools will be used to develop skills to capture a variety of media to enable student’s to build their own eportfolio. This can be used for assessment, RPL, and gaining feedback from industry/ employers.

The aim is for THED to link to alumni as part of a learning and professional community beyond TAFE and build future connections with industry. Join the discussion in the THED group
