DairyTas and Into Dairy recently supported the introduction of the TAP to delegates at the NAAE (National Association of Agricultural Educators) Conference, "Celebrating diversity and innovation in agriculture and education" which was held in Launceston and was hosted by TAEN (Tasmanian Agricultural Education Network). Keynote speakers included Tim Gentle (THINK.DIGITAL), Michael McQueen with strategies for engaging tomorrow’s students and Colin Fassnidge who demonstrated how best to explain to students about paddock to plate and eliminating waste while cutting up a suckling pig. The TAP model was showcased, "TAPping into the community, an innovative curriculum model" in a series of workshops and field trips in what was a very stimulating, thought provoking conference with many inspiring educators present. Thanks TAEN.
