OK I am brand new to all of this, so am feeling quite overwhelmed by it all! Creating a blog is a new experience for me but seems ok so far - don't you love these "wizards" which help you through each step :-)
This is now my fourth paper towards MIT's Graduate Certificate in Applied eLearning but already is very different from the previous three.
I am finding motivation a little hard at the moment as we have suddenly been reduced in staff in our section and I have had to take on extra workload which I didn't need!
I lecture in Tourism and Travel Consultancy at UCOL, a tertiary provider in Palmerston North, New Zealand. I am originally from Northern Ireland where I completed my degree in Tourism and Hotel Management and worked in various areas of the tourism industry.
I have dabbled in Blackboard, creating sites for my on and off campus students to assist their learning but definitely know there is so much more out there for me to learn, so that is what I'm here for.
I will buddy up with my colleague from UCOL as it will help keep me motivated! I look forward to meeting many of you during this semester.
