Our amazing speaker:
Dr. Darrall G Thompson MDes PhD
Learning Futures Fellow
University of Technology Sydney
A Masters in Design and a Ph.D. in Education have been the platform for a number of awards in technology-enhanced learning. Darrall's educational research and design thinking have been commercialized by UTS in the form of a software system: REVIEW criteria-based assessment used for assurance of learning and capability development in universities and schools. This was developed by a local company, Academ, in Crows Nest, as part of their suite of software for academics. http://academ.com.au/
