12:30 - PUBLIC TALK - University planning and architecture: The search for perfection : A public lecture by Paul Roberts Website | More Information
Paul Roberts, a UK-based strategic development adviser and director of Turnberry Consulting, will explore what constitutes a successful campus and how to apply these conclusions to real-life, modern-day contexts.

Roberts will take the audience through the rich history of campus design, looking at the most important themes in the field's development over the past 800 years in order to set the context for an assessment of the sector in the 21st century.

He will identify some of the most prevalent and important trends currently shaping campus environments in today's climate of tightened budgets and mounting competition, and discuss how the physical environment of a university can help strengthen it as an institution over the long term.

15:00 - PUBLIC TALK - What is Creativity and How do We Develop it in an Educational Setting? : Public talk with Alana Lewis Website | More Information
In 2008, the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians, states that successful learners are ‘’creative, innovative and resourceful and are able to solve problems in ways that draw upon a range of learning areas and disciplines’’. Through polymathic principles, is it possible that we can re-develop old school educational pedagogy to challenge traditional methods of classroom teaching to incorporate transdisciplinary practice for 21st century learners? Is it time to create a new educational “ism” - Polymathicism.

As an artist, Alana Lewis is a jack of all trades, she uses an eclectic mix of conceptual and material practices. As an educator she is interested in developing creativity through transdisciplinary practice in secondary education. In 2017 she was awarded the NSW Premier’s Copyright Agency Creativity across the Curriculum Scholarship to research transdisciplinary practice through Science and Art.
