Hi I'm Jackie and after completing the last MOOC I thought I'd give this a go! I gained so much from the first one….I'm sure I'll learn lots this time. I'm a teacher librarian in a Junior school, but I'm sure I'll be able to adapt some of the terrific ideas others will share.
Hi, I'm Suz (or Fedsie). I've been a science teacher for nearly 10 years and have recently started teaching technology (9/10IST and 11/12IPT) as well. I work at a Catholic college in regional NSW. I've completed a master of ICT in education through CSU. Now I'm enjoying exploring more PL through online courses such as this. I'm looking forward to networking with lots of other technology-focused educators. #networking

Hello! I'm Rebecca, one of the Instructors for this course. I've been working with the CSER Group for almost 3 years now.
