RSM InnovatED is our annual event to showcase our faculty’s innovation efforts, to learn from each other, and to inspire one another to try different things and do things differently. This year we are dedicating the event to learning and teaching innovations around the themes of: EDTech, Skills development, and Student agency. 

Can I join for part of the day? Yes! The choice of what and how much to attend is up to you. We hope you’ll come for several sessions but it’s also fine to join a breakout session or just the keynote.

What are the themes?

We are dedicating the event to learning and teaching innovations around the themes of: 

  • EdTech: How can you utilise artificial intelligence tools and digital applications to enhance student learning experiences and better streamline faculty workflow? 
  • Skills development: Deep dive into how fellow teachers immerse students in real-life practices and use reflective practices to drive the process of skills development. 
  • Student agency: What design principles and instructional strategies are a sure way to help nurture meaningful student agency in your curriculum?
