Event description

Description

Biosciences Education Australia Network (BEAN) is holding our annual forum in Canberra on Monday, 10 and Tuesday, 11 December at the Shine Dome, plus a "Next Gen Tech Now" workshop Sunday, 9 December at Robertson Building #46, 46 Sullivans Creek Road, ANU.

This year’s theme will be The future’s so bright I need…

The future is bright but also challenging in an ever-increasing number of ways. We are seeing true generational change “trickling” into higher ed from the schools and we urgently need to pop on our shades and look the bright future front on and think about what we need to accommodate the needs of the next generation of wonderful students who will have stewardship over the planet.

The BEAN forums are designed specifically to be of interest to colleagues across all of STE(A)MM, 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. Please encourage your colleagues from other disciplines to join us!

Registration costs are $260 for two-day forum on Monday, 10 Dec and Tuesday, 11 Dec – and $120 for the forum dinner on Monday, 10 Dec – at Courgette restaurant in Canberra, 6.30 for 7pm.

Please check www.BEAN.edu.au for updates and program details, coming soon!
