Event Details



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

The P-TECH program involves long term partnerships between industry, schools and tertiary education providers that enable businesses to play an active role in the learning and career development of their future workforce.   Stella and Cecil Andrews College is working collaboratively with a number of locally based corporate employer partners including Austal, Thales Group, Civmec Construction & Engineering, Deloitte Australia and Datacom Australia.  Stella, successfully attained $5m in state funding to build a state of the art purpose built STEM Centre at Cecil Andrews College.  The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) Centre focusse   P-TECH program was designed with flexible interactive spaces able to transform and accommodate space for emergent technologies, including artificial intelligence, augmented reality and virtual reality. Drones, robotics, cyber safety and bio chemical projects. It’s about inviting kids into education and making it so appealing they cannot resist it.  In 2013 Cecil Andrews College faced closure, since taking on the Principal role Stella Jinman has in just four years turned Cecil Andrews College into a Teacher Development School specialising in STEM, Innovation and Technology with Specialists Arts and AFL Programs at its core.  Year 12 Attainment levels have doubled along with a significant increase in NAPLAN. An innovative and forward thinking leader, Stella Jinman is blending 21st Century technologies in the curriculum to map that content to real-world skills that are needed.

This year, Karen was awarded a Social Change Fellowship from the Westpac Bicentennial Foundation for her work activating this highly collaborative, community-driven learning network.

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.
