Thanks to our teachers for attending our 2022 VET in Schools Conference

On Friday 25th of November, teachers from all over Queensland and parts of the ACT, came together for ViSC 2022 – See What’s Possible, where they heard from leading industry professionals and practitioners across each of our program areas: Sport, Fitness, Business and Tourism.

This year’s theme is ‘See What’s Possible’ – post the pandemic, what can you do to heighten the future outcomes for your students and elevate your role as a teacher? How do we keep students engaged and focused regardless of what is happening around them? #ViSC2022 aims to address and stimulate debate on the most significant changes taking place across those industries that you are preparing your students to enter.

#ViSC2022 was again delivered as a hybrid event, which accommodates our traditional live (face-to-face) event as well as provides a concurrent virtual experience leveraging our ‘Elevate’ (virtual streaming) platform for all our Binnacle deliverers.

Dr Adam Fraser’s cutting-edge research with Deakin University shows that what high performers have in common is that they use ‘The Third Space’ to overcome setbacks and assume a mindset to get the most out of what is coming next. ‘The Third Space’ is the transitional gap between “What the hell just happened?” and “What’s next?”. High performers use this space to decompress, jettison the negative and bring new focus and energy to the next task at hand.

How to maximise the day?

Our mission is to provide you with the greatest amount of value possible! This being the case, we want to ensure you are able to capitalise on the information being shared with you across the entire day. To do so, we suggest the following:

  • Log into ‘Elevate’ – our virtual streaming platform in the lead-up to the event to familiarise yourself with its functionality. This will be available to all registered attendees.
  • All live and virtual attendees should have a fully charged device (either a phone, tablet or laptop). This will allow you to engage with teachers all over the state via a live chat feed, contribute to ongoing polls, and have an opportunity to have your questions responded to by our presenters in each session.
  • Make sure your device has a good internet connection so you don’t miss out on the information addressed in each session due to lag or dropouts.
  • If you are tuning in virtually, we encourage you to get together with your Binnacle colleagues or colleagues from another school to consume the event in one location.
