Our CEO, Alana Anderson, co-authored a recently published article in the Australian Journal of Adult Learning along with Dr Susan Bandias and Dr Rajeev Sharma.
This article highlighted the impacts of COVID on teaching, training, and learning in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector.
In late 2020 Alana Kaye College won the Northern Territory Chief Minister’s Export Award for being the International Education Provider demonstrating resilience and forward-thinking during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The paper commences with a description of the impact of COVID-19 on the VET sector. The paper then describes the VET regulatory environment prior to February 2020 and the responsibility of VET providers to comply with the requirements of the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA), in the delivery of VET programs to domestic and international students. A discussion of the lack of a specific vocational education pedagogy, the complexity of delivering VET programs online as well as current research findings in this area follows.
We have already received a significant amount of positive feedback from the article, including being featured in a national VET forum on emerging trends in VET Education.
The full article can be found in Volume 62, Number 2, July 2022 issue of the Australian Journal of Adult Learning, or alternatively you can purchase this article directly at the link below.
From the entire team at Alana Kaye College, we’d like to congratulate Alana for her achievement on co-authoring this article and sharing her insight and experience to help others within the VET and education sectors.
Well done, Alana! 👏
