Back to All Events

Edalex are proud to be sponsoring the Melbourne EdTech Week, which will be held in hybrid format from 8 to 11 August 2022. A place to discuss, debate and articulate a vision for the Australian education ecosystem’s role in driving real innovation across the education and skills sector and its connection to the future of work. 

The first part of the Week is anchored by the Melbourne EdTech Summit taking place on the 8 and 9 August. It is a two-day thought leadership program at Deakin Downtown and we're also thrilled to be part of a panel discussion: "All Learning Counts - Skills Recognition of Non-Formal Learning and Aligning to Formal Learning Pathways".

In this session, the panel will discuss what learning and recognition means for learning organisations such as Scouts Australia and what it means in the context of Australian frameworks. They explore the challenges of recognising and representing informal and non-formal learning and the provision of pathways for learners to formal learning outcomes. They detail the technology enablement of skills recognition through mapping and aligning skills data using open data standards to achieve scale.
