Professional Learning

The Education Institute enhances the quality of education and training and professional learning through the provision of short courses for professionals throughout Australia and overseas. The short course offerings are informed by current research and consist of a variety of award programs, non-award programs and bespoke sessions.

As well as providing short courses and professional learning, the Education Institute also has extensive experience in providing research and evaluation services, and draws upon the expertise of consultants who are leaders in their field of study. The Education Institute’s consultants are actively engaged in innovative teaching, learning and policy development, and have strong networks with experts in Australia and overseas, enhancing the international reputation of its short courses and research program.

Formerly the Lifelong Learning Network, The Education Institute has over a decade’s experience in serving Australia’s education and training sector. Its short courses, reports and publications inform policy, planning, teaching and learning at all levels of the education and training system.
