THE Information Technology (IT) team at Coffs Harbour Education Campus has been recognised for its Excellence in Delivery in Public Education and Training.
The reward came at the recent North Coast TAFE Staff Achievement Awards.
The CHEC Information Technology team of 18 staff, led by head teacher Warwick Harman, has not only developed a number of completely on-line IT courses, but developed their own software to monitor the progress of more than 50 IT trainees, 250 online students and project managed the statewide teacher training programs, as part of the Digital Education Revolution (DER).
The DER is a statewide project to deliver training to teachers in the use of the Adobe suite, One Note and other applications.
“Team member Joanne Hinton managed the project so well that the Department of Education and Training has requested that CHEC project manage other upcoming statewide IT projects,” Mr Harman said.
This development and training role resulted in the successful delivery of more than 300 courses statewide.
The management involved coordination of lesson material, lesson plans and delivery.
Mr Harman said there had been a lot of very positive feedback from students.
The comments included: “I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the course – one of the best I’ve attended over the years. It was very beneficial and I felt I learnt a lot”, and “... very informative, helpful and didn’t confuse us with jargon”.
“The iPhone training was also extremely well received, with repeat training now being requested from other departments,” Mr Harman said
