Event Details



These sessions will be scheduled for most Wednesdays in Term 4 of 2017 from 4.30 6.00PM at Curtin University.

Each week we’ll have a small panel who will talk about some of the wicked problems they are facing and how they’re working to create solutions.

We want attendees to bring their own resourcefulness, innovation and creativity as well the big and small ideas they’re facing they look to the future.

Everyone is encouraged to listen, engage, challenge and, most of all, look for ways to connect and collaborate.

Her current focus is on empowering teachers and learners to build global competencies through transformative education, including Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and Education for Global Citizenship (EdGC). Caroline believes in local action for global change: everyone can make choices and take actions in their everyday lives which have global impact and through which, together, we can transform our world and create a better future for all.

Dr Elaine Lewis is the Cross Curriculum Leader at an independent public school, Perth, Western Australia.  She has worked as a teacher, across K-7, for many years.  Her research interests focus on Education for Sustainability (EfS), with particular interest in the Sustainable Schools WA initiative.  Elaine completed her doctoral research in this area, conducting a longitudinal study of the impact of EfS at a primary school.  Elaine has been presented with numerous teaching awards at state and national levels.  She serves on the various EfS committees and in these roles is involved in many school and community-based EfS initiatives.


So, mark Wednesdays as busy in your calendar – these sessions will propel you over the hump each week and see you thinking of new possibilities.

We’ll also keep you posted with invitations to each event and you can share details with your staff, students, and community.

The first four weeks we’ll meet in the new Curtin Medical Science building, then we’ll spend the next four in the Curtin Learning Space under the Library, then we’ll finish back at the Medical School.

We are hoping to be able to utilise our ability to live cast events to enable regional, remote, national and international participation.

Learning Futures Network

The Learning Futures team focuses on strategic innovations that advance the mission of the university. The team helps shape the future of learning and teaching at the university through human and technological capacity building and promotes continuous improvement using learning analytics. 

This team’s programs will influence and impact students, staff and the broader community by leading and managing a range of early stage innovation projects. These projects will range across formal and informal learning innovations, pathways and partnerships (including UniReady as an enabling program) and learning analytics. 

The primary benefits realized by the team are the university’s capability for scalable personalization and its international reputation as a leader through technology-enriched learning and teaching.
