CoDesign Culture Lab

The CoDesign Culture Lab — led by the ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science — is a four-day event series featuring workshops, presentations, facilitated CoDesign sessions, and public programs to explore innovations in engineering and computer science practice, teaching and critical discourse.

Join us as we explore the future of engineering and computer science and help us codesign a path forward that meets the challenges of the 21st century and beyond.

About the CoDesign Culture Lab

The CoDesign Culture Lab will look at the role of creativity and collaboration in contemporary engineering and computer science practice. It will also explore how we can bring these ideas into new teaching and learning environments. 

In organising the CoDesign Culture Lab, we continue the process of building a network of collaborators who will inspire and provoke us, keep us active and accountable. We will learn about each other’s work through a series of workshops and provocations. We will codesign research and education agendas and we will explore diverse models of innovative practice.

We can’t deploy methods and techniques of the past and expect different outcomes. We need to reimagine problem solving and work together to form interdisciplinary teams of world class thinkers who are capable of tackling the complexity before us.

Program information

This program details how we will spend our time together over the three and a half days, and provides brief background information on the individuals that have been invited to share their knowledge and experience in workshops, talks and discussions.

Please note some sessions in this program are by invitation only.
