Deakins Learning and Teaching Conference goes Digital for 2020

Deakin Learning Futures is pleased to announce that preparations are well under way for the 2020 Deakin Learning and Teaching Virtual Conference. This year, our theme is ‘Critical conversations, challenges and celebrations’. The program will be a rich exploration of how we have found ways to share and work together during this very unusual year, new conversations about learning and teaching practice and big ideas, and staff and student reflection on experiences of going virtual. Professor Liz Johnson, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Education, will be our keynote speaker. Her opening session will take a look at the year that was – and what a year it has been.
