VCAA Early Years Twilight Seminars

The VCAA Early Years Twilight Seminar series is designed to engage early years multidisciplinary networks and communities of practice. It focuses on the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework (VEYLDF), evidence-based research, resources and implications for practice. Intentional teaching and instructional support is a specific feature of these interactive seminars.

The seminars are held at the Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership in North Melbourne, and broadcast to network sites across Melbourne and Victoria via video conferencing. All sessions are held from 5.30pm to 7pm.
