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.
