Virtual Excursions training

Virtual Excursions Australia is offering a FREE training session on Thursday 18 March from 2:30pm. Learn how to deliver virtual excursions live from outdoor locations with a team of skilled eduactors and the Education Manager at Sydney Olympic Park who will share their experiences in outdoor program delivery.

Last year, the Sydney Olympic Park Education team transitioned to online delivery for its fieldwork sessions exploring the Badu Wetlands. Not only did virtual program delivery enable the Team to continue to meet the needs of their existing school base, it also extended their audience reach to schools that were unable to attend programs onsite due to distance.

“The ability to offer interactive virtual programming outdoors adds another dimension to STEM events,” said Ben Newsome of Fizzics Education who works with Sydney Olympic Park Authority.

“The Park’s educators have a strong background in making these presentations engaging for a variety of audiences and their expertise in using the equipment & software will be valuable to any organisation looking to deliver hybrid events or continue to their extend STEM virtual enrichment capabilities.”

Karen Player from Virtual Excursions Australia said : “This training opportunity is a perfect opportunity to leverage skills you may have developed previously. Think outside the box and learn how to deliver engaging programs outside!”
