My profile for EpCoP MOOC

I’m an ESL Teacher and Home Tutor Coordinator at Glenroy Neighbourhood Learning Centre in Melbourne, Victoria – a registered training organisation. I teach the newly arrived migrants (adults) and train volunteers to teach the migrants who are unable to access classes. I’m also the Resources Officer – spending $$$!
I have come to love all things *e* after I completed the Reflect and Connect Course with Coach Carole, Pauline Wilson and Junita Lyon. Nine years ago when I migrated to Australia I knew very little about computer based learning. But when I had to submit all assignments electronically for my Dip Ed at La Trobe Uni I had to push myself to learn. Now I cannot do any work without my computer and iPhone and love the digital world - my PLN has grown so much! And I’ve started reflecting - blogging!
There are challenges – as I work in the community sector resources are limited, but there is a lot of potential and hope. I try to instil that hope in myself, my colleagues and students.
I hope to bring to the EpCoP MOOC as a Volunteer Challenge Mentor the passion I have for e-learning (as I know that is the only way forward) and offer constant support and encouragement that I always get.

  1. Hi Manjit, one of the best things about online learning is the passionate people, like yourself, that I bump into along the way. So, fellow Volunteer Challenge Mentor, I'll see you around in the MOOC :)
