The Tasmanian Agricultural Education Network (TAEN) is hosting the 2018 National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE) Conference in Launceston, Tasmania, 7–11 January 2018.
The conference theme ‘Diversity and innovation in agriculture and education’ will be underpinned by engaging national and international speakers and presentations, participatory workshops, an innovative trade area, informative industry tours and valuable networking events.
