Almost a year ago I blogged about a turning point in my formal work life. I’d finished a draft of the PhD and had been accepted into a pre-service teacher graduate diploma. A year on and there is another turning point. Tomorrow is the last day of my teaching internship, if my eportfolio passes I will become eligible for provisional registration with the Queensland College of Teachers to teach high school Information Technology and Mathematics. But I won’t be teaching in high schools next year.
A few weeks ago I was offered a position within the Faculty of Education at the University of Southern Queensland (USQ). I start in late January 2012. Much remains uncertain about exactly what I’ll be doing, but it will likely involve teaching courses being taken by pre-service teachers. Most likely something around e-learning/ICTs and perhaps some mathematics, will find out over coming months. In terms of research, I’m hoping/planing to do a lot more around e-learning and much more. I’m looking forward to the challenge. A lot to read, think and do.
In between organising the task of relocating the family to Toowoomba, I am hoping to have the opportunity to blog, tweet, follow, etc a lot more.
