Event description

Description

Futures Enthusiasts are people who are keen to be a part of the next wave of developments in higher education using technology and concepts to innovate learning and teaching practices.

This year we would like to extend an invitation to our gamut of enthusiasts to a monthly catered networking event at the Futures Observatory.

Every last Wednesday of the month across 2017 between 4-5pm, meet and share ideas with other education futures enthusiasts from the UWA community, Perth start-ups, industry or technology specialists.

Attending this monthly social event gives you the opportunity to:

  • discuss an idea or concept with a specialist that could be part of an Education Futures Scholarship project,
  • team up with other enthusiasts on projects to streamline costs, services and resources to enhance learning and teaching at UWA,
  • find out about innovative developments in technologies to integrate and support your teaching practices, and
  • enjoy conversations with like-minded people.

Given the broad range of specialist skills and knowledge at UWA, we hope these casual interactions can facilitate strategies to improve student learning and engagement as well as raise the profile of the Education Futures Scholarship program.

CANCELLED - FEMU EVENT FOR JULY 2017

Due to our speaker, Ezrina Fewings being unwell we have decided to cancel the Futures Enthusiasts Meet-Up (FEMU) event that was scheduled to take place on Wednesday, 26 July 2017 from 4pm to 5pm.

Thank you for your understanding, and our apologies for any inconvenience.

Featuring a demonstration of the Blackboard Instructor mobile app.

Blackboard’s highly anticipated scheduled global release of the Blackboard Instructor app, is earmarked for mid-July 2017 through both iOS and Android app stores – just in time for Semester 2, 2017!

Learning Technologist Ezrina Fewings will give attendees a brief overview of the Blackboard Instructor app, designed to better meet the needs of staff, by offering to enhance the user-centric mobile experience. Essentially, this first release of Blackboard Instructor focuses on optimising the accessibility to the unit, viewing content and test, participation in discussions, creating announcements, joining Collaborate sessions and generally improving the workflow critical for learning and teaching.
