Design Minds PD Day with Smithsonian Fellow

Innovation Inquiry for Educators using Library Collections

Date: Friday 11 November 2016

Time: 9.00am – 4.00pm

Venue: Heritage Collection Learning Room, Level 4, State Library of Queensland.

What to bring: Laptop or Ipad would be beneficial for note taking and online research

Design Minds professional development workshops encourage knowledge and skills exchange and development in design education; increase the capacity of Queensland teachers to teach creativity and design; and increase the opportunity for Queensland’s young people to take part in world-class design education projects and activities.

This intimate workshop will take school teachers through guided exercises using the Design Minds process (inquire, ideate, implement), to familiarise participants with publicly accessible educational resources and demonstrate how to use the library collection innovatively for classroom use.

It will also include an SLQ John Oxley Library tour and hands-on white gloves experience plus more...

The workshop will be led by Dr. Kathy Mackey, 2015 Smithsonian Fellow* and supported by design mentors, practising designers and educators. Kathy's fellowship research report was entitled ‘The Influence of Cultural Partnerships on Innovation Inquiry within Education: Moving Beyond STE/AM to Participatory Practices’. Morning tea and lunch is provided.

Here’s what participants from some of our previous workshops had to say:

“I really enjoyed the day and have been provided numerous opportunities to challenge my own thinking and learning techniques.”

"This was a very thought-provoking day. I can see that there are many opportunities for students to work together collaboratively, to build skills, ideas and confidences."

"I have attended nothing like this before—very innovative!” 


* The Queensland-Smithsonian Fellowships Program supports collaborativeprojects between the Queensland Government and the Smithsonian Institution, based in the United States.
