Join the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) for the inaugural CoDesign Culture Lab from 26 to 29 November.
These events will explore the roles creativity and collaboration play in contemporary engineering and computer science practice. We will also investigate how we can bring these ideas into new teaching and learning environments as CECS reimagines new types of educational models fit for the middle of the 21st century.
The Culture Lab comprises a number of ticketed workshops and two public events - a Creativity and Collaboration Summit and an Education Lab.
Join us on Tuesday 26 November (1pm to 5.30pm), for the Creativity and Collaboration Summit at the Kambri Cultural Centre's Cinema. The Dean of CECS, Prof Elanor Huntington, will showcase the significance creativity and collaboration have within the multi-million dollar Reimagine investment made by the ANU to the College.
Case studies will be presented by researchers and practitioners that explore issues related to technology, design and future oriented problem-solving, including:
- Distinguished Professor Genevieve Bell, Autonomy, Agency and Assurance Institute, ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science
- Angie Abdilla, Old Ways, New
- Anna Madeline and Associate Professor Mitchell Whitelaw, ANU School of Art and Design
- Andrew Lamb, Global, Field Ready
- Callie Doyle-Scott, Independent Writer and Game Maker
- Peter Worthy, Social Robotics Lab, University of Queensland
- Dr Fiona Beck, Energy Exchange Institute and ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science
Speakers at the Summit will be sharing the innovative ways they have been practicing their disciplines - be they engineering, computer science or other fields entirely - and discussing how creativity and collaboration have featured within their work and the value these elements have added. Register your interest to attend the Creativity and Collaboration Summit here.
On Thursday 28 November (2pm to 5.30pm), take part in the Education Lab on Level 6 of the Marie Reay Teaching Centre.
You will have the opportunity to engage with a number of experts who share a collective interest in improving the way we teach and learn in engineering and computer science and who connect those ambitions to improving the lives of others, including:
- Dr Abel Nyamapfene, University College London
- Associate Professor Arlindo Silva, Singapore University of Technology and Design
- Professor Shriram Krishnamurthi and Professor Kathi Fisler, Brown University
- Associate Professor Jochen Trumpf, Software Innovation Institute, ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science
- Dr Lesley Seebeck, Cyber Institute, ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science
- Professor Cameron Tonkinwise, University of Technology Sydney
- Professor Euan Lindsay, Charles Sturt University
- Senior Lecturer Karl Kane, Massey University
If you would like to hear from these experts as they share their ideas on how they're forming interdisciplinary teams of world class thinkers who are capable of tackling the complexity before us, register your interest for the Education Lab today!
