A Beginning...

Well, by way of beginning I'm now celebrating having found the tab that says 'New Post'...and I'm hoping that these words miraculously appear in the appropriate spot! So...my name's Amanda and I have never blogged at all before - noting that this is, of course, obvious to all ;-).

So - to address the elements of introduction, as asked:

I have a background in education - having taught a variety of subjects in an array of high schools. I've also worked in adult learning for a number of organisations and am currently working on a project that required the development of a training programme for some of our staff. It turns out that flexible learning is the most appropriate medium for this - hence I am embarking on an enormous learning curve!

My only prior experience with any kind of alternate learning delivery is that I'm currently studying by distance through an Australian Uni, so work with blackboard and postings (and the dreaded e-submission!) in that environment.


  1. Great to see Amanda.. I already know more about you then I could gather at the "face to face" meeting!..

    Keep an eye on that Join page. If new people start adding their blog addresses.. perhaps leave them a comment of encouragement. Networking through your blog will help establish strong online learning connections with others in this course.

  2. Hi Amanda, you've made a great start. As Leigh said, getting out and making comments on other people's blogs is a great way of networking. Here's a great post about how to make comments on blogs:


  3. Hi Amanda,
