The moodleverse could not be more excited about his presence in Perth for MoodeMoot AU 2016. In fairness, it would have been a bigger shock if was not present. Not only because of the critical time and opportunity. Dougiamas (and thus Moodle) happens to be Perthian and a Curtin doctoral graduate.
Dougiamas is known for addressing the community’s comments and questions with knowledge of both the business and the technical side of Moodle. We are eager to listen his vision forward in his keynote talk, The New Moodle.
Joining him we have Melissa Silk. A Sydney native, Melissa is best known for her advocacy efforts in favor of STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths). Her strongest conviction is that to make the most of the STEM they need to embed the Arts, right into curricula. In January Melissa found STEAMpop to spark a STEM + Arts (STEAM) collaboration in creative projects for people of all ages. Many also know Melissa from her involvement in the International Grammar School, where her STEAM concept, now a keynote, saw the light.
To complete the confirmed roster we have James Hamilton. Head of Learning Technologies and Systems at provider Navitas, Hamilton has led learning platform projects, thousands of users strong, first at Macquarie Uni and now for Navitas. Hamilton will continue to hold his foot on solid hardware and his mind on the stars through his keynote, Moodle
in Wonderland: 7 “impossible” things.
MoodleMoot AU will hold theme talks day or half a day long on subjects including:
- Developer “jams”
- Course design
And a comedy session on the night of the 28th, after the Conference Dinner.
