Welcome to VALBEC’s 2023 conference titled: REFOCUS: Learner Centred Practice.

For this conference we are excited to showcase all of the exciting things that are done in our educational spaces. With the COVID pandemic impacting so greatly, there is no better time than now to start re-focussing on our students and the practices that help us engage and connect with them.

There are three focus areas for presentations: ‘Classroom Practices’, Programs of Innovation’ and ‘Workplace Connections’ which promise to create an amazing array of spaces for us all to learn from.

The Key Note speaker will be announced shortly, but if you feel you would like to submit a proposal to present at our conference next year, please submit your proposal here: https://valbec.org.au/SubmitProposalPresent
