The Technology & Commerce and Careers Departments had an opportunity to investigate entrepreneurship, innovation and technology at the Murdoch University Launchpad. The Technology & Commerce Learning Area encompasses Digital Technology, Media, Business and Accounting courses.

The Launchpad is a space for entrepreneurs to get advice, create prototypes, pitch their ideas and work collaboratively. This was the setting for our professional learning as our team explored how we can more effectively connect our subjects with skills needed for a successful career.

We learnt strategies to inspire business-minded students from Entrepreneur-in-Residence Jeremy Chetty and saw how Virtual Reality and simulations were used in a university setting. SimLab is a mixed-reality environment where students can learn how to respond to difficult scenarios, from nursing consults to behaviour management in classrooms, and we were able to see it in action.

By far, the most enjoyable activity was the LEGO Workshop, where our initiative, resilience, collaboration and creativity came to the fore! LEGO is used to promote this style of thinking in university students and is a powerful tool to enhance innovation.
