INF537 Digital Futures Colloquium (8)

This subject introduces industry experts, exemplary practitioners and thought leaders through a series of seminar presentations designed to provide insights into the impact of knowledge networks, collaboration and innovation in digital cultures of learning. Each seminar provides the stimulus to identify and reflect critically on topics that have implications for a student's own professional development, professional practice and scholarly interest. This subject is the capstone experience providing the opportunity to undertake a study, media project, or article for publication to demonstrate knowledge and skills gained from the course.

No offerings have been identified for this subject in 2021.
