It is now nearly time for TAFE frontiers to finish. We’ve been active providers of elearning materials and professional development for the last six years. My time with TAFE frontiers spans July 2003 – June 2005: just two years but what an experience.
I refer to this part of my career as the Networking phase. During my two years I learned new skills in expanding my networks and I am now ready and confident to move into the next phase of my career – Mobile Virtual and Flexible (MVF).
My bio from the Networks Community reads as follows:
My appointment as one of three online facilitators for this community is a great thrill for me. I am very pleased to fill this role and look forward to communicating with you virtually. Please invite me to chat when you see me online in the community and you can always contact me by email.I also manage the Digital Storytelling Network at: http://www.groups.edna.edu.au/user/edit.php?id=370&course=107 and invite you to visit to see what the storytellers are up to.
I am a Flexible Learning Consultant at TAFE frontiers in Melbourne, Australia. I was the project manager for the ‘Digital Storytelling (DST) in Vocational Education and Training (VET)’ project in 2004 that created a series of case studies, workshops and learning materials for the DST methodology. One of my tasks this year has been to conduct a number of DST workshops for VET professionals in Victoria as the demand for skills in this area has increased substantially.
I have been a Flexible Learning Manager, Flexible Learning Leader and Instructional Designer for e-Learning practices and materials for the last ten years. This work has been conducted in several of the Victorian Institute of TAFE’s both face-to-face and virtually. My current goal is to expand the Digital Storytelling Network in Australia and plan to conduct DST workshops online in the near future.
To this I can now add the following:
LearnScope support for Victorian LearnScope managers 2005
Digital Storytelling Online – facilitator for online projects with Swinburne
Online Mentoring for the Emerging Technologies Network – 7 Victorian TAFEs
Manager of the Elluminate Live room provided for the state of Victoria by TAFE frontiers.
Not bad! I’m pleased with my achievements.
