Join us on Future Fridays!

Welcome to our new Future Friday series, our open platform for talks, discussions and experimentation on new innovations for education, research and entrepreneurship. 

Aimed at teachers, researchers, social innovators, young professionals and students, each session will link to one of three overarching themes: innovating digital learning, using tech to create social impact and improving innovation skills for professionals and students. 

In addition to asking internal and external partners to share their work and ideas with the audience, Future Friday is also a platform where we present and test Centre for Innovation's showcases and concepts, to encourage discussion and participation.


Future Friday 17 November: Re-inventing Medical Education with Mixed Reality 

We are trying to move beyond the ‘wow factor’ of mixed reality (AR/VR), and study how these innovative technologies can mean for medical education. Join us and experiment mixed reality for education with us! 

We will be presenting our award winning HoloLens-app for medical education, which allows students to learn from virtual anatomical models in an academic setting.

Future Friday 24 NovemberWorkshop: Playful learning through digital tools

Playful learning has potential to stimulate creativity, critical thinking and complex problem solving skills.   

Join our Future Friday workshop to experience Playfields, an innovative digital app for playful field research methods.

The workshop will consist of an introduction to playful research methods, a playtest and an open discussion about this innovative method.

This workshop is for students, teachers and researchers with an interest in maps, games and creative approaches to methods. We also welcome contributions from participants around their experiences with playful and creative research. It will be a chance for participants to get acquainted with new creative methods and get inspiration for their own work.
