Translated title of the contribution: Teaching in VET in Australia

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


    The work of the VET teacher in Australia is complex, multi-faceted and much more than the narrow definitions of competency that are at the basis of many training reforms. The moral, social and personal dimensions of teaching, and the recognition of the importance of these dimensions, survive in the expressions of praxis that come from those who have day to day responsibility for the their students. The Australian VET teacher is confronted by a regulated system, an implicit set of tensions in their work, and by a dialogue that rarely focuses of the topic of pedagogy. However, Pedagogy is at the heart of VET and as we prepare teachers for their participation in VET it is a topic that rightly deserves conversation and debate.
