Videolinq with Queensland TAFE and Simon
Simon Brown (www.twitter.com/skytrystsjoy) asked me to do a professional development session for the TAFE's VE Mentoring group. Initially I was intending to be in Brisbane on-site, but it didn't work out that way so I joined by VC. Was worried abt linking up to so many sites (10 or 12?) but they were all very practiced with a skilled facilitator getting the session going. And it went off without a technical hitch.
The group is interesting as they have librarians and teachers working together, with the librarians acting as technology guides. Must find out more.
In this case, Simon wanted me to talk to them about my work as eLearning Advisor at EIT and how we are rolling out e-learning projects and embedding e in the institution.
I intended to talk about our e-Learning community of practice and how we've set up our major e-learning projects. What I did talk about was EDUCAUSE (edaust09), Twitter and Moodle. And hammered on about the importance of PLEs for teachers as well.
Still very good and hope to catch up with them again.
