The six hour interactive workshop will explore and co-create solutions to smart campus challenges.
- How to think about the challenge. Identifying the right challenges and opportunities to tackle.
- Understanding and deciding the vision and goal, e.g. Is a smart campus as a better place: for students to to be and to learn?, to trial and innovate new technologies and solutions?, or both?
- Understanding how a Living Lab approach could help.
- Identifying the required fundamentals and foundations of success and failure
- Will data and information will play a foundational (infrastructure-like) role?
- How not to design for high cost and failure.
- Of course we’ll be a smart campus - what could possibly go wrong? Understanding some technology risks.
