My Name is Jane Hickey.
I am currently enrolled in the Master of Education and am undertaking AED5023: E-Learning.
Formal education has been an ongoing journey for me, starting with a Cert 4 in Youth Work, then a diploma in Youth Work, Bachelor of Arts (Youth Work), Cert 4 in Disability, Cert 4 in Training and Assessment, Post grad Diploma in Education and now the Masters in Education.
I have spent 12 years in community services, predominately working with young people with disability. For the past 3 years I have been teaching for Victoria University, in the TAFE department, teaching in the disability, community services and youth work qualifications.
I have moderate computer skills and have used both Webct and Wiki (through Pebblepad and pbworks) in my teaching.
I would like to gain more skills and knowledge in the area of e-learning as well as tools for my ‘kitbag’ to use in the classroom to engage my technologically savy students!
