TAFE Western continues to engage, inspire and educate staff about incorporating technology into their teaching, with the Technology2U Roadshow receiving positive reviews from staff in Broken Hill, Wilcannia and Menindee.
eLearning Support Officer Naomi Jawai said Electrical, Information Technology, Business, Education Support, Community Services, Aboriginal Education Training Unit and Hub staff all derived great benefit from the roadshow last week.
“The roadshow is about engaging with staff on the ground, showcasing supported technologies within Western, delivery options through TAFE Western Connect (TWC), as well as providing assistance and advice to meet the specific needs of participants whether one-on-one or through drop-in workshop sessions,” Mrs Jawai said.
“The roadshow gave participants a chance to discuss what is working with their current delivery as well as seeking support and assistance in how technology can be incorporated to enable improved delivery.
“Initial feedback has been positive. It was great to be able to get out and meet staff face-to-face at their own colleges whilst promoting existing and emerging technologies and platforms that can be used to enhance resources and delivery.”
Mrs Jawai said the main project goals for the Technology2U Roadshow included:
Providing some foundation training in technologies such as Adobe Connect, Video Conferencing and Moodle.
Mrs Jawai said the Technology2U Roadshow will visit all 24 TAFE Western colleges between now and November, with the next roadshows going to Condobolin, Parkes and Forbes from August 22.
