Hi my name is Irene and I am enrolled in the Master of Teaching. I completed a BSc majoring in programming and chemistry in the 1980′s during a time when mainframe computers were the size of rooms. It’s sad but true that almost all of the computer languages I learnt have been relegated to museums. I completed a Grad Dip in Secondary Education in the early 90′s and spent a number of years teaching adults in a private training organisation and TAFE.
I am hoping to use the skills I learn in this class to find innovate ways to advertise study pathways to students. I am currently working in the course governance area at Victoria University and am studying as I love going to class and learning new things (although not so keen on homework) and would like to keep my options open for returning to teaching.
