I’ve now been in Australia for almost two weeks. As is usually the case I’ve picked up loads of stuff that I haven’t been able to blog about yet, but I will at least throw up a few links that I’ve found so that I can revisit them later.
I’ve met some very interesting academics since I’ve been here.
- Carol Johnson of the University of Wisconsin-Stout
- Jim Bright the developer of the chaos theory of careers who I’ve written about on the blog before.
- John Polesel who writes about schools and education policy.
- Mary McMahon who writes about career counselling, qualitative assessment, narrative and systems theory.
- Shanton Chang who writes about IT and social media
- Veronica Volkoff who writes about VET and education policy.
- Career Development Learning: Maximising the contribution of work-integrated learning to the student experience
- Gonski report – Review of education funding in Australia. This has been a key political hot potato while I’ve been here with the government trying to strangle this initiative.
- Making career development core business
- Professional Standards for Australian Career Development Practitioners
- Victoria Careers Curriculum Framework
