The Carpe Diem (from the Latin 'seize the day') learning design process is a fast, effective and highly practical design approach to enable unit teams to understand, develop and implement forward-looking, student-centred learning.
Workshops involve each unit going through sequential collaborative tasks, including blueprinting, storyboarding, scaffolded learning, development of e-tivities (activities developed for a digital environment), peer review and action planning.
Workshops in 2017
You told us that it’s difficult to find time to design your unit for the betterment of your students’ experience. We listened and are running Carpe Diem workshops in a variety of different formats to suit you and your unit.
Original (2 days)
The original Carpe Diem process is best suited to the learning design of new units, substantial changes or really focusing on one aspect to be aligned within your unit (e.g. assessment) and allows for more detailed analysis and reflection. Please note that you must register and attend for both days to complete the Carpe Diem process. Register below:
Intensive (1 day)
The one-day intensive workshop is best suited to participants who have already attended an original Carpe Diem workshop and are familiar with the process, or new participants who are looking for an intensive approach. Register below:
Saturday Intensive (1 day)
If you are unable to attend a workshop during the working week, we will, for the first time, run one-day Intensive Carpe Diem workshops on a Saturday. Register below:
Three sessions (4 hours each)
If you don’t have a block of time available, the four-hour sessions could work for you. This workshop series consists of four-hour mini workshops on three separate days spread over a week or number of weeks. Please note that you must register and attend all three sessions to complete the Carpe Diem process. Check back later for future dates.
Five sessions (2 hours each)
Strapped for time? The two-hour sessions could work for you. This workshop series consists of two-hour mini workshops on five separate days spread over a week or number of weeks. Please note that you must register and attend all five sessions to complete the Carpe Diem process. Check back later for future dates.
