Pop-up incubator for students, staff and researchers

10 February 2017 - 31 July 2017

Building on our vision to serve the world through innovation, Macquarie has opened its first pop-up incubator on campus.

The pop-up incubator is a brand new space for students, researchers and staff who are working on research or an idea that can be commercialised. We currently offer free desk space, meeting areas & instant access to the growing entrepreneurial community who share and contribute experience and resources that help early ideas grow through the difficult and vulnerable stages of development.

If you are working on an idea, big or small, we encourage you to apply by email with a one paragraph pitch on your business or idea.

The Pop-Up Incubator is made possible by funding from the NSW Department of Industry, Skills and Regional Development through the Boosting Business Innovation Program.

Rethinking ‘Lectures’ For The Digital Audience (An LTX Event)

15 June 2017

Digital platforms change the way students engage with learning and are therefore changing the way we teach. New platforms call for a rethinking of how we deliver ‘lecture content’. It’s not about focusing on the technology itself, but understanding how pedagogy and approaches to teaching can be enhanced and adapted to suit new delivery platforms.

Session 2, 2017 will see the implementation of Echo 360’s upgraded lecture capture tool, Active Learning Platform (ALP) across the entire university.

ALP brings with it live streaming capacity and the ability to turn lectures and tutorials into more collaborative communities of learning through participatory activity.

Over the last couple of years Macquarie has introduced various flipped and blended learning and teaching approaches, where content is delivered through video and other means.

These concepts, approaches, tools and more will be discussed at the next LTX event on 15 June, 2017 1pm-2:00pm in Macquarie Theatre.

Hear from teachers who have successfully utilised these tools to create more engaging, flexible and dynamic ways to engage the student of today.

When: Thursday 15 June 2017

Where: Macquarie Theatre

Time: 1pm-2pm
