Show, Demo & Inspo

I wanted a way for the team to easily share stuff (that inspires or demonstrates work they’ve done, and more) with each other that didn’t necessarily require them to identify themselves, if the didn’t want to. I chose Padlet because it’s quick, allows anonymous posting, we already have an account with them, and it does good job of managing all the embed types and making them look good, and works one all devices. The tagline is… Experienced something that resonates with you? Whatever it is, share it and inspire others!

Automation & Tooling – why not consider them as helpful colleagues and team members

For a while I’ve been thinking about how adopt a different approach to tooling in our team, beyond nameless and obtuse groups of tools built on google sheets that record and reveal information about our projects. I think there’s value in considering these tools more like colleagues and team members with position descriptions and real roles to perform. I also think there’s value in extending the metaphor to the point of giving these team members names, for fun and function. Meet the team Introducing Wanda, Dennis, Terry, Justin, Gordon, Velma,…

The focus of the inaugural seminar was micro-credentials within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), the national policy for regulated qualifications in Australian education and training. Why do we need…

WIFI PASSENGER FLOW ANALYSIS TRIAL – Richmond Station

I’m interested in the teaching and learning as well as art applications of this technology. What’s interesting about this as an exercise is the wasted opportunity to celebrate and showcase respondents of their input into the data gathering and research process. Metro and Monash could have actively showcase the exercise by representing the number of passengers/users on the platform in a creative way, personally and publically – on their device and on large screens and through speakers. Doing this may mitigate some of the possible resistance by passengers who only…
