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.


Innovative methodologies to increase engagement in CSCL

23 June 2017

Many researchers argue that students must be meaningfully engaged in the learning resources for effective learning to occur. However, current online learners still report a problematic lack of attractive and challenging learning resources that engage them in the learning process. This endemic problem is even more evident in online collaborative learning (CSCL) approaches whose resources lack of authentic interactivity, user empowerment, social identity and challenge, thus having a negative effect on learners’ self-motivation and engagement.

This talk will address some specific methodologies to overcome these and other limitations found in CSCL, based on both highly interactive systems and innovative learning strategies, such as learning analytics, gamification and emotional awareness. Further, the knowledge extracted from the collaborative interaction is used to assess participation behaviour, knowledge building and performance in order to provide effective feedback and evaluation of the collaborative process. Experiences gained from applying these methodologies to real contexts of CSCL will be shown and discussed.
