Welcome to the Vocational Education and Training Group

Blog Post created by Laura Joseph on Nov 8, 2015

Hello and welcome to the new Vocational Education and Training section of the Canvas Community - the VET Group!


Susan Cornish and I will be helping facilitate this group. We're both at TAFE NSW, based in Sydney, Australia, and are keen to connect with the VET community in Australia, as well as in other countries.


Some suggestions for questions and topics that this group will address include:


  • using a competency based grading scheme for assessments
  • developing practical vocational skills in fully online courses
  • suggestions and best practice for how to create and deliver courses to our students who have Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).
  • compliance - how to set up assessments in canvas that smoothly lead to compliant evidence
  • reporting - how to improve linkages between Canvas reports and mandatory reporting to save on the time it takes to manipulate data exported from Canvas.


Thanks to Laurie Johns, Damian Noud, and Joanne Law for some of these great suggestions.


We look forward to discussing these and many other issues with other VET Canvas users in the near future.


Hope to see you soon in this space!
