Designing Professional e-Learning

The Australian Computer Society Canberra Conference needed an extra speaker next Tuesday. So I am filling a 2:20pm slot with "Designing Professional e-Learning". It is an opportune time of this as ANU has just announced a "major expansion of engineering and computer science".

Designing Professional e-Learning

Speaker: Tom Worthington, MEd, FACS CP, Honorary Senior Lecturer, Research School of Computer Science, Australian National University

Award winning e-learning designer Tom Worthington will discuss how to equip professionals for the technology challenges of the 21st Century. He will detail how to provide formal postgraduate education to students in their workplaces via mobile devices. Tom will discuss his own experience as an international student using an e-portfolio to provide evidence of skills.


Tom Worthington is an independent consulting Certified Computer Professional and an Honorary Senior Lecturer in the Research School of Computer Science at the ANU. He writes on education issues as "The Higher Education Whisperer" and more generally as "The Net Traveler". Tom is leading an ANU Grand Challenge team to provide m-learning to 200,000 students across the indo-pacific region.
