The University of Newcastle, Australia

ITS Innovation Team

The ITS Innovation Team, located within IT Services, is a small group of technology innovation specialists who work towards bringing new and exciting technology to the University. Their goal is to supplement and enhance the learning environment for students, as well as support researchers, thereby enriching the campus and higher education experience.

The team works with subject matter experts from around the University to produce prototypes / proofs of concept (POC’s) around particular learning, teaching, research and organisational outcomes or problems. These prototypes / POC’s are primarily used to inform and assess the viability, suitability and broader opportunity of solutions for the University.
