Events and Training
Virtual Excursions Australia is offering a FREE training session on Thursday March 18 at 2:30pm. This is designed to follow up on the amazing work organisation did delivered in 2020. We have had a lot of interest from people in learning about delivering virtual excursions outside. To accommodate these requests we have invited the Education Manager at Sydney Olympic Park to share their experiences in outdoor delivery.
In 2020 the Sydney Olympic Park Education team transitioned to online delivery for their fieldwork sessions exploring the Badu wetlands at Sydney Olympic Park. Not only did it enable them to continue to meet the needs of their existing school base, it also opened up their audience to schools that haven’t been able to attend onsite due to distance.
During the training Sydney Olympic Park will show some of their fieldwork activities, talk about the technology they uses, outline some of the digital resources they developed to support the program and discuss some of the challenges they encountered.
