An innovative pathway to higher education
Wyndham is the fastest growing region in Victoria and the fourth fastest growing region in Australia. The projected population is 236,657 residents by 2020, 5.5% of Melbourne's total estimated population. The south west of Melbourne is also increasing its demand for education with a 30% increase in students enrolling in university over the past two years.
Access to education is a significant driver of regional economic development and improving the pathways between school, Vocational Education and Training (VET) and higher education plays a core role in redressing disadvantage and meeting industry needs. The Werribee Learning Centre is an innovative partnership which leverages off the strong relationship between Deakin and The Gordon – a partnership that dates back 40 years. Seamless pathways between TAFE and university are particularly important for encouraging aspiration for students from low socioeconomic backgrounds.
Deakin has always had a strong reputation for innovation and in this digital age, has been driving the digital frontier in the use of new and emerging technologies in research and teaching. Deakin is developing a dynamic 'cloud learning' environment that includes open educational resources, new delivery platforms and new ways of assessing and credentialing learners. Deakin's learning sites are media-rich and utilise video conferencing, blogs and social media to create personalised and interactive learning wherever students are located.
