MARCH 2019


Hello co-conspirators

Teaching has commenced in our experimental master's program for 2019. We wouldn’t say that things have settled down, but there is a rhythm in sight.


OUR NEWS AND UPDATES

3Ai MASTERS PILOT LAUNCH

We were very pleased that so many of our co-conspirators were able to join us for the launch of our pilot masters program. For those who missed it, we made a video.
MEET OUR STUDENTS

Our first student cohort has arrived at the 3Ai! We need many voices, backgrounds and perspectives to build something entirely new. You’ll hear more about what our students are up to, but for now – human first.
A MOMENT TO REFLECT

At the 3Ai we always seek to place our work and hopes for the future in the context of what has come before. Last month, Glenn Dickins, one of the first ANU engineering graduates, met with our students as they commenced the beginning of their experiment in education and emerging technologies. Read more about Glenn's visit here.
 
THANKS!

The students ended their orientation week being thankful. And we are pleased to say that our co-conspirators were not forgotten!

"Dear FOI (Friends of the Institute)
There are so many of you!
Thank you for everything you have done so far to build the momentum that got us to where we are right now.

We're all in this together.

Thank you also in advance for all the help you will contribute in the next 12 months - we can't do this alone.

Kind Regards on behalf of the the 3Ai Pilots"
