On Thursday 2 November, after the conclusion of the Sydney Program, those delegates registered for the Melbourne program will travel to Melbourne for the conclusion of the Conference’s journey through Australia. See the tentative schedule below with full details to come shortly. In addition to fantastic pre-selected off-site programs and a networking event, the Melbourne portion of the conference will feature a common program held at the Melbourne School of Design, located on the expansive University of Melbourne campus in the heart of the city. Completed in 2014, the building’s advanced intricacies of construction and learning potential make it stand out as unmatched in the higher education built environment. It was designed following a “Built Pedagogy” concept, meaning that all architectural elements contribute educational value. People learn not only within classrooms, but also by using the building and observing the ways that others use it. As such, it is the ideal location for the conference, with its premier lecture and meeting spaces.
