2020 continues to be a challenging year. Victorian schools are experiencing huge disruptions and VCE teachers are quickly updating their lesson plans to address the Adjusted Study Designs for 2020. Teachers have told us they are looking for new and innovative ways to re-focus their VCE students and help them prepare to achieve their best in the final exam. At Jacaranda, we want to support teachers and their students to succeed in their assessment and the exam.

In response, Jacaranda invite you to watch this free, on-demand webinar: Teaching VCE Business Management in any setting – remote, mixed and face-to-face. During this webinar, Jacaranda’s highly experienced authors Matt Richardson and Simon Phelan, answer your questions about:

  • Managing the COVID-19 disruptions and implementation of the Adjusted Study Design for 2020
  • Preparing students for the 2020 final examination
  • Ensuring current Units 1 & 2 students hit the ground running in Units 3 & 4
  • Curating contemporary case studies, including the impact of COVID-19 on business

We also unpack the new editions of Jacaranda Key Concepts in VCE Business Management 6E and how it will help you prepare your students for success in VCE, access relevant and current case studies and support your teaching in these uncertain times.
