At the nexus of learning and innovation
August 16, 10:00 am

In The Refectory, on Level 5 of The Abercrombie Building (H70)


You are invited to a University of Sydney Innovation Week workshop, hosted by Dr Stephanie Wilson and Dr Pippa Yeoman, co-conveners of the CRLI’s Learning Spaces Special Interest Group.
The workshop will be run in two parts. In the first, you will hear from innovators using new learning spaces in the University of Sydney Business School to transform the nature and quality of scheduled time with students. In the second, you will participate in a design challenge, using a set of cards to scaffold conversations about how to increase the alignment between learning theory, task design, the designed environment and the social interactions that support valued learning activity. 
Guest speakers include: Associate Professor Stefan Meisiek, talking about his role in developing new learning spaces and the complementary teaching and learning practices they accommodate;Tony Cannell, talking about how he has redesigned BUSS5100: Communicating in Business, to make the most of the new Collaborative Learning Studios; and Jimmy Northwood talking about facilitating case-based discussion with postgraduate students in the new Case Study Theatres.

The design challenge will be facilitated by Dr Stephanie Wilson using methods developed by Dr Pippa Yeoman.
