RMIT’s ‘A Digital Start’, an ECP Post COVID-19 Initiative in collaboration with the College of Science, Engineering and Health invite you to an online event, 

‘What is the Future of STEMM/Digital Education?

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced a rapid transition to online classes. During post COVID-19, when we are able to return to campus en masse, what will be the best blend of online and face-to-face learning? What will be most effective? Most efficient? Most engaging? What will best practice in STEMM tertiary education look like?
