Carpe Diem Workshops

Getting the most out of the workshop

  • It is recommended at least two academics participate per unit to gain maximum benefit and it is very important that one of these must be the unit coordinator, although we can work with just the unit coordinator if required.
  • Unit coordinators may also invite their own technical staff, subject librarians or researchers.
  • It is important to have agreed unit learning outcomes.
  • Please bring your own laptop or mobile device.

Additionally, we highly recommend you watch the following information prior to starting the workshop

About Carpe Diem

The Carpe Diem (from the Latin 'seize the day') process is a fast, effective and highly practical design process to enable unit teams to understand, develop and implement forward-looking, student-centred learning designs.

UWA staff can participate in a Carpe Diem workshop to transform their campus-based unit into digital, blended and mobile formats, and to develop mobile and life-integrated learning opportunities using up-to-date technologies and social media.

Workshops involve sequential collaborative tasks, including blueprinting, story boarding, team working and scaffolded learning, development of e-tivities (activities developed for a digital environment), peer review and action planning.
