Event description

Description

The Biosciences Education Australia Network (BEAN) is holding its annual meeting in Canberra on Dec 11-12 at the Shine Dome. By popular demand, we’ll have another the forum dinner at the Monster Kitchen and Bar, which is now rated as one of the top places to eat in Australia!

This year’s theme will be “Back to the Future: Rethinking Curriculum”. No more reinventing the wheel folks, let’s find the other three and drive off into the brave new world!

We are working to a more interactive format this year – with keynote talks and interactive sessions where you can learn some new tools and methods. We will also welcome posters and some short presentation from those of you doing interesting new “stuff”.

These BEAN conferences are designed to be of interest to colleagues across all of STE(A)M, as we really seek to explore ways in which to best prepare ourselves and our students for learning in the 21C. In particular, to explore how we can collaborate to enhance the curriculum from an interdisciplinary perspective that draws from all areas of academia.

Speakers include Orkan Telhan who is Associate Professor of Fine Arts - Emerging Design Practices at University of Pennsylvania, School of Design, Frances Valintine who is an “education futurist” and the Founder and Chair of The Mind Lab by and Tech Futures Lab in New Zealand, Anna Reid (Dean of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music), Zoe Doubleday and Sean Connell from the School of Biology and the Environment Institute at Adelaide University, and Abelardo Pardo (IT Engineering) and Pippa Yeoman (Education) from Sydney.

Master animator Chris Hammang will talk about his new approach the reinvigorating LMS and will also give a hands-on tutorial on how to make a red blood cell using the free software package Blender. We will then show you how to put it into a VR environment. This simple workflow will demystify these important new methods and give you some hands on experience as we start to build capacity in these areas that are rapidly becoming mainstream.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact Steph Beames at s.beames@uq.edu.au
