Hear from academics, researchers and experts on how digital inking is transforming the education sector at this symposium presented in collaboration with Microsoft Australia.
Today the potential for technology to act as a major catalyst for educational change has never been more apparent.
Educators are utilising technology to facilitate meaningful learning tasks that engage students collaboratively; while institutions are shifting towards using cloud-based computing and decentralised information technology services to transform the campus experience.
In the morning session the symposium will cover:

- best practices from other Tertiary Educators and thought leaders on Digital transformation
- provide an opportunity for academics to present their experiences
In the afternoon session the symposium will focus on:
- experiencing the latest devices and supporting teaching and learning resources
- learning from others in workshops designed for lecturers to transform their teaching to engage 21st century learners
