ACU is joining forces with Microsoft Australia-New Zealand to deliver value to students, the future health and education workforce and the broader community.
ACU and Microsoft ANZ have in common a commitment to empowering individuals and communities through innovation. ACU’s mission aims at enriching lives through learning and knowledge and bringing opportunities to those in need. Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more.
The partnership is articulated through a three-horizons strategic plan focused on:
- empowering students through digital innovation,
- empowering staff and professionals, and
- bringing innovation to telehealth and aged care. A program of collaboration projects is in place to deliver on this framework.
Under the partnership, Microsoft ANZ and ACU will work together to personalise the higher education experience at ACU through signature pedagogy for enhanced on-campus teaching, as well as a blended learning and virtual reality (VR) experiences for students in health sciences and education. This work is aimed at enriching student learning through exposure to a broader and richer range of technologies and digital tools. The partners will explore the use of immersive and holographic technologies to support health and education students in developing an appreciation of clinical and classroom scenarios.
