Festival of Learning

The 2016 Festival of Learning was held over three days, Wednesday to Friday 4-6 May. The Festival commenced with an opening event in the Engineering Pavilion, attended by approximately 80 people, and provided an opportunity for staff and students to ‘experience’ first hand, some of the amazing tools that are available to enhance the learning experience.

Our guest speaker Wayne Mackintosh, Director of the Open Education Resource (OER) Foundation and the UNESCO/ICDE Chair in OER, visiting from New Zealand, provided the plenary session kicking off the 37 sessions attended by 561 staff across the 3 days. The Festival celebrations concluded with the presentation, by the Vice-Chancellor, of 12 Curtin Excellence and Innovation in Teaching (CEIT) awards and citations, and official close of the Festival. Overall, 705 people participated in one or more of the Festival activities.
