Just call me “professor”…

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Ok, so maybe I don’t have the qualifications to be called “professor”, but I thought I’d take this opportunity to fill you in on some of the other work I’ve been doing lately.

You may have read previously that I hold a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment, and I am pleased to say that this qualification has now taken me from TAFE to University.

For the past three weeks, and with another to complete in a couple of weeks time – I have been presenting the tutorial and lecture for a first year commerce subject at Deakin University Warrnambool – yep, my old stomping ground!

While I’ve previously spent some time in front of a class at my local TAFE, being at Deakin has been a bit of a surreal experience.  The lecture theatre is a grand room and there is greater emphasis on the use of technology in presentations.  But of particular pleasure has been working alongside those who taught me while I was at University (we try not to mention that this happened around 20 years ago…that would make us feel old!) – however seeing the familiar names and faces has certainly been comforting.

And while the Warrnambool campus of Deakin University has expanded and changed in many ways since I was a student, it’s good to see that some of the landmarks are still identifiable – do any of my former classmates remember G101??

On a final note, it is really pleasing and exciting to see these students just starting out with their studies and looking forward to their careers…oh to be young again!

    Oh how exciting ! What subject are you teaching ? At least you can hang out with a few professors there!
    A fabulous way to be able to share your knowledge, technical know how and passion for accounting.
