Eddie Blass - The Inventorium
Having the unusual combined knowledge base that stems from having worked in both Business and Education disciplines as an Academic (appointed Professor in 2011), and in senior management roles in Universities at faculty and cross-university functions, Eddie brings an understanding of the role of the academic, of the student learning experience, of quality assurance mechanisms and of online materials development and implementation into the practice of designing, developing and delivering online education development.
Her passion for helping students succeed is core to her values, as is providing equality of access to opportunity for all. Eddie is committed to student centred learning design, and creates experiential online learning that fully engages learners. She has given up practice as a full-time academic in order to pursue the chance to collaborate with others in achieving educational transformation that will serve the needs of students and industry in tomorrow’s professional settings. Her Doctoral thesis was titled ‘The Future University’.
The Inventorium is the cornerstone of this work, and Eddie founded the company in November 2016 as a social enterprise, Pty Ltd, and has since been working with a small team of educator writers to develop the pilot which is currently being tested.
