LDI Sessioneer Program 2016

Feb 16, 2016 by Kuan-Yu Wesley Chi

From deep within the LDI think-tank a new peak-development opportunity has arrived!   We are proud to announce the LDI Sessioneer Program! LDI is looking to train 8-16 students as LDI workshop Designer/Facilitators!   Why Sessioneers? In LDI, a workshop is not just a presentation, it is an experience. LDI workshops are intentionally designed to be personal and creative explorations of possibility spaces that allow students and facilitators to co-construct knowledge and understanding. ...

Student Success is...

Oct 12, 2015 by Michaela Emingerova

"Success"... a bit of an ambiguous concept, no? If you've got an idea about what it means to you, here's a pretty cool opportunity to help the university big wigs get a handle on what it means to all of us. The stories that come out of this project are shaping new QUT policy, so it's a super cool/impactful project to be a part of. The closing date has been extended until all student places are filled (only 6 for each workshop), so get in quick! GP RSVP: http://bit.ly/RSVPgardenspoint KG RS...
