During Macquarie University’s short history of 50 years, it has cemented itself into the top two percent of universities worldwide, along with a sought after 5-star QS rating. More than AU$1 billion has been recently invested in the institution, upgrading facilities and focusing on bringing students the latest in digital and collaborative technology.
Our Google Jamboard Champion, Dr. Daniel Burgarth, ARC Future Fellow in Theoretical Quantum Information Science, has been searching for new ways of enhancing learning, research, teaching and outreach. “I can collaborate with my researchers abroad, and we write and talk. Just like the traditional chalk-and-talk style, but connected all over the world” Dr. Burgarth explains. “We can actually bring up a video here, we can see each other, so there’s the social component and at the same time there’s the science component.” He goes on to explain, “The Jamboard is a wonderful way of integrating traditional whiteboard teaching with real time collaboration. It’s not just me talking, it’s actually also the students writing in real time and collaborating with me”.
Macquarie University is one of Australia’s top ranked universities, based in Sydney. Macquarie University has a strong tradition of innovation and exploration, continuing to break new ground, ranking among the top 100 institutions in the world for accounting and finance; communication, cultural and media; Earth and marine sciences; education; English language and literature; geography; law; linguistics and psychology.
Dr. Burgarth incorporates the use of G Suite integration for sharing and collaborating on Google documents and images, using image and handwriting recognition and using Hangout Meets for video conferencing with students and collaborators worldwide.
