Professional Development

As part of our commitment to enhancing teacher expertise in digital technologies and robotics, UQSchoolsNet has created a variety of Continuing Professional Development courses to assist teachers to stay up-to-date with current knowledge and technologies and to transfer these skills into the classroom.

Why learn with us?

For more than a century, The University of Queensland (UQ) has educated and worked with outstanding people to deliver knowledge leadership for a better world.

Study Fresh aims to increase productivity in Queensland schools through ensuring the healthiest possible learning environment by building indoor air quality (IAQ) sensors to monitor the air quality in classrooms and learn ways through which it can be improved. The course fits within schools’ Digital Technologies curriculums and can be implemented in the classroom for year 6 and up.
Unlock your creativity and be introduced to the concepts of Design Thinking. Then put this new knowledge to the test by designing your own wearable technology. Design Thinking is a creative problem-solving technique that takes a human-centric approach to finding solutions. It is a popular procedure used by many industries and businesses (think Apple, Google and AirBnb to name a few). It’s time to think outside the box and use your creativity.
