Inspiration Day 2020

On June 5th, we are happy to invite you to our first Australian Inspiration Day, co-hosted with Deakin University and Griffith University. In collaboration with Australian Universities, join us to discuss Empowering Pedagogies with FeedbackFruits.

During the online Inspiration Day, we will discuss successful use cases, look at Dotank projects and provide you with an insight into FeedbackFruits' roadmap. You will hear about speakers from Deakin University, Monash University, Griffith University, Erasmus University Rotterdam and more. We hope that you will play an active part in this day.

On behalf of Deakin, Griffith and FeedbackFruits; we are excited to see you on June 5th.

You are invited to the annual Inspiration Day.

Join us in March to meet the fellow partners and FeedbackFruits team,
and share experiences cross-institutionally.

The theme for this year is

Instructional Design as the
Enabler of Advanced Pedagogy

How does the current state of instructional design look like?
What can we expect more in the future?

We will dive into successful instructional designs and introduce a groundbreaking project that will accelerate us to the next steps with inspiring speakers.

We are looking forward to discuss this year's theme with everyone from educational leaders to instructional designers and teachers who are interested in the topic.
