At the nexus of learning and innovation

'Reimagining the future: Frontiers of learning innovation and research'.

CRLI have been awarded funding by the University’s Strategic Education Grants for the Sydney Research Seminars series 'Reimagining the future: Frontiers of learning innovation and research'.

Who better to give us insights into learning than our ‘expert’ learners – our students? This seminar series will involve undergraduate and postgraduate (coursework and research) students from various disciplines, together with academics, in a series of online discussions and face-to-face seminars that will lead to production of a bi-annual Sydney Learning Innovation and Research Horizon Report.

Why communicate through video?

And how to create animated video in 5 minutes? By Erica Ho

I always want my students to share their ideas with others. But it is not realistic to expect students to read writings written by peers when they don’t even have time to finish the course readings you assigned, our students are too busy to read.
