Rockhampton collaboration

The Rockhampton workshop involved 13 participants.

Participants were able to share ideas, resources and strategies and develop relationships for future collaboration.

Planned collaboration includes:
  • Sally James (CQIT) working with Mary McKenzie (CQIT) and Leonie Howe (CQIT) to develop online learning for Beauty Services
  • Sally is also planning to work with North Mackay School to develop a customised version of the Hairdressing Toolbox
  • Penny Skerman plans to work with local ETRF stakeholders (4 High Schools) in the areas of learning outcomes and students' needs
  • Nathan Wyer (Tooloola SHS) will be doing an individual project focused on building a web-based management system to enable him to track his cohort that includes disengaged youth
  • Wendy Thomas (Business Trainer, Smart City Vocational College) will explore the use of online tools to enhance her company's courses
  • Kaylene Grewar (Practice Firm Supervisor, CQIT) will assist Jennifer Ottaway (Toolooa SHS) and John Sefton (CQIT Teacher, Business Studies) to develop a Practice Firm for their courses
  • Gary Latcham (Youth Support Coordinator, Gladstone Area Group Apprentices) and Nathan Wyer (Pathways Coordinator, Toolooa School) have created the basis for local collaboration to assist disengaged 14-17 year olds.
  • Sally and Kaylene (CQIT) will collaborate to develop and orientation program for CQTAFE Online

Nathan Wyer also described a program funded by industry that involves the use of a farm in Gladstone to build the knowledge and skills of disengaged youth, students at risk, and indigenous youth. A number of people in the group offered to contribute to the project through competency development and online training where appropriate (and identified other resource people).

The group will conduct their October review via video-conferencing through linkages to the TAFE network in Biloela, Rockhampton, Mackay, Emerald, Gladstone and Canning.

Hi all
Just attended the Brisbane session so I thought I would add this but not sure where.

The EdNA groups (Networks 2005) will be hosting another Cool Tools this month. The details are at:
This has the details of some blogging workshops as well.

Looking forward to keeping in touch with the Brisbane Team.

I'm from GCIT and I attended the Gold Coast session and I am keen to collaborate on online orientation. I've noted that Kaylene and Sally are looking at that so if I can join your discussions or have any feedback from your discussions in some way that would be great.
Look forward to hearing of your progress.
