Teaching and learning in the vocational education and training (VET) sector is distinct from other forms of pedagogy as it deals with the specific knowledge, skills and attributes required in vocational contexts. VET teachers generally teach one or more subjects within a prescribed course of study at technical and further education (TAFE) institutes, polytechnics and other training institutes. The full potential of contemporary teaching and learning technologies is a focus for researchers in this area, specifically how these technologies produce better learning outcomes for students. This involves the examination of how education and training providers support the delivery and assessment of training packages. Research in this area also examines: contemporary technologies; learning environments; student behaviour; graduate outcomes, and work integrated learning and internships in higher education.
