A wonderful group of educators from K12 & Higher Education visited the Adobe Sydney office on Thursday 27th February for an Inject Creativity into the Curriculum professional learning event.

It was great to have Adobe Education Leaders Brett Kent (NSW DoE) and Craig Daalmeijer-Power (TAFE NSW) help run some workshop sessions and also Bec Smith from Northern Beaches Christian School who shared her passion for Photoshop.

It was also great to have a cameo appearance from Adobe Education Leader Emeritus Chris Betcher.

On Wednesday 26th February, I had the pleasure to run two sets of Adobe Spark workshops with academics and professional staff at the South Parramatta Campus of Western Sydney University.

The focus of these workshops was Adobe Spark Page and how it can be used to enhance communication for students, academic and non-acadmic staff. This is one of a range of events that Adobe has been running with WSU to help enhance awareness and use of their Adobe applications.
