INSPIRE is a hub and network for new approaches to learning, communication and collaboration based in the Faculty of Education, Science, Technology and Mathematics at the University of Canberra. We apply design thinking and learning design principles to work with:

  • the Faculty of Education, Science, Technology and Mathematics on teacher education and STEM education
  • Principals, teachers and students on quality teaching and learning practice
  • the Designs for Learning Research Cluster on the design of new learning environments and new educational services and
  • government and community organisations around engagement and innovation
INSPIRE is learning commons, a place to imagine, experiment and design new ways of working and learning digitally. INSPIRE services highlight quality teaching and contemporary learning practices through staying connected to global initiatives and trends about learning design and design thinking. We focus on a futures perspective and developing foresight and dispositions, not just knowledge and skills.
