Our key speaker, Yvette Drager

Yvette has been involved in adult education for over nineteen years with more than seventeen years of that experience within the VET sector. She has a passion for e-learning, sparked early in her VET career due to a need to deliver training to Australian students while working offshore.

At EdVET 2018, Yvette will present on Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality and Mixed Reality: three points of digital disruption that education and training need to recognise, prioritise and respond to.

Yvette recently completed her Master in Education: Knowledge Networks and Digital Innovation and was awarded the Anne Clyde Memorial Award for Best Essay by the ALIA Academic and Research Libraries WA branch.
