Facilitated by experienced Learning Designers, this one-day workshop is a great practical opportunity for new and current teaching staff at UWA to experience the unit design process.

You and your colleagues can participate in a number of sequential collaborative tasks which will allow you to explore ideas for student-centred learning as well as map out and plan the face-to-face and online elements for the unit you want to specifically focus on for this workshop.

The workshop begins at 9:30am sharp and finishes at 4:30pm. There is an expectation that participants will be present for the full day. Please answer as many of the questions at the point of registration. This extremely valuable information will be used to coordinate the best team to assist you at this workshop and during follow-up opportunities.

Tea, coffee and a light lunch will be provided.

To get the most out of this workshop we highly recommend the following:

A Unit Coordinator for the unit must attend. Unit Coordinators are encouraged to invite as many of their unit team members as possible. Please ensure all participants register. Unit Coordinators must bring agreed unit learning outcomes and the current unit outline of the chosen unit. It is important to bring your own laptop or mobile device for online development.

18:30 - SCREENING - ‘Dying to Live’ screening 12/12/18 Windsor Cinema : Life on the organ donation waiting list Website | More Information
The Lions Eye Institute is hosting a screening of the ‘Dying to Live’ documentary on December 12th at the Windsor Cinema in Nedlands. The documentary delves into life on the organ donation waiting list, the complex world of organ and tissue transplantation and the heart-wrenching stories of real people awaiting life-saving organs in Australia, when the only thing standing between them and death is the kindness of a stranger. The documentary is compelling and moving in covering a topic so many of us never talk about, but need to. Tickets can be purchased using this link: https://tickets.demand.film/event/6495QJKWKBJE

18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - The Promise of Quantum Computing (and how we’re going to get there!) Website | More Information
A public lecture by Jeremy O’Brien, Co-founder and CEO, PsiQuantum and 2018 UWA Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow.

Quantum computing promises to transform almost every aspect of our lives, society and economy. However, despite more than quarter of a century of effort, useful systems are yet to be realized. The challenge is that useful quantum computing requires ~1,000,000 qubits (to meet the demands of error correction). This challenge will only be met in the near term by harnessing the advanced manufacturing capabilities of the conventional silicon computer chip industry—one that has benefited from sustained investment of ~ $1tn over the past 50 years. In this lecture Professor O'Brien will survey the proposed approaches for achieving this goal and show that silicon photonics stands out in making general purpose quantum computing achievable with conventional silicon processes.
