Greetings from the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), where the "Education for Innovation Workshop" just started. The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE) organized the event to work on Australia’s approach to science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). This is of interest, as I just published a book on what to do: "Digital Teaching In Higher Education: Designing E-learning for International Students of Technology, Innovation and the Environment". Speakers include Dr Lachlan Blackhall, Co-founder and CEO of Reposit Power, and Dr Sarah Pearson, CEO, Canberra Innovation Network.
My worry is that this may be just another talk-fest, rather than communicating what has been shown to work and proposing new solutions. There is little point in just repeating that STEM is in demand but enrollments are declining.
