On 16 October 2019 the VEDT team was awarded Platinum Winner in two award categories at the LearnX awards, including “Best Talent – Learning Design Team” and “Best Learning Model – Online”. Elissa Mackenzie, Jack Dunstan, Andrew Newhouse, Haley Gunn and Nicky Callinan attended the evening to accept the awards on behalf of the team. VEDT was also recognised as a finalist for “Best Learning & Development Project – Compliance”.

LearnX celebrates learning design through industry recognition and conferences. The awards recognise the work of individuals, teams and organisations that delivers positive impacts in learning projects in various industry sectors. Other winners include such major corporations and universities as Victoria Univeristy, Bupa, CSIRO and QBE.

The VEDT team had also been awarded Platinum winner for “Best Talent” last year. This year, they shared the award with the RMIT Creds team.

It was exciting to see the work of the two teams recognised amongst other large and successful corporations. In particular, it was great to see senior multimedia designer, Nicky Callinan recognised for her original artwork on the ‘Make a Presentation’ unit.

The VEDT team have worked hard to produce generic units of competency developed from specific courses to be rolled out across multiple programs. They have been updated to be more flexible and provide blended learning. The team are delighted to be recognised for the project and awarded for their hard work.
