IM4DC faculty reflection workshop

As part of its comprehensive monitoring and evaluation process, IM4DC hosted a one-day workshop in conjunction with the Mining for Development Conference in Perth, to reflect upon progress to date and lessons learned.

The workshop participants included educators and researchers from both IM4DC host universities – The University of Western Australia (UWA) and The University of Queensland (UQ) – responsible for the implementation of key program areas though teaching, research and institutional partnerships.

The participants reflected on the impact of IM4DC as observed by teaching faculty and researchers, explored areas for further development and considered approaches to ongoing program development, including how the Minerals and Energy for Development Alliance established by UWA and UQ should learn the lessons from, and build on the work of IM4DC.

The workshop discussions and conclusions will be fed into final reporting by IM4DC and will inform development of a leading practice strategic framework for future minerals and energy for development activities.
