The Learning Technologies and Spaces Roadmap, 2017-2020

In late 2015 Professor Sherman Young launched the Learning and Teaching Strategic Framework, Learning for the Future. Point 1.3.1 of Learning for the Future calls for the creation of a “roadmap for the development of spaces and technologies”.

Tech Talk: 3D

Tech Talk is an informal fortnightly gathering to share new developments in learning technologies at Macquarie. Each session begins with a short talk on a specific theme, followed by an open forum for discussion about anything related to learning technologies.

Join us this session for:

3D: Developing a 3D Web Interface for Learning and Teaching

Michael Rampe will talk about his current project developing a bespoke 3D interface for learning and teaching purposes with the working name of “Pedestal”. The current working interface can be seen here: http://3d.ltc.mq.edu.au/3d/3d_grid.php

Michael will also be bringing along and demoing some new 3D scanning hardware available for loan accross the university.

Tech Talk brings together Macquarie staff involved in supporting and designing technology-enabled learning, and those with a very keen interest in learning technologies.

Exploring 3D technologies – save the date!

Seems like there is a new story about 3D technologies every other day now. The New Media Consortium’s Horizon Report 2014: Higher Education Edition identifies 3D printing as one the most important developments in educational technology for higher education, with a time-to-adoption horizon of two to three years.
