Now retired, Pam continues to use her skills as Webmaster for Sydney u3a, leading a team of web editors from the seven regions.
She added a Certificate IV in TESOL to her qualifications and works as a volunteer with the Adult Migrant English Programme, tutoring new migrants, one-on-one.
Based in Sydney, Pam previously advised schools on strategies for the effective and transformative use of technology in the curriculum. Her Masters in Education (Adult Education) focused on the challenges teachers face with integrating the learning technologies.
She has consulted with a number of schools on technology integration, strategic planning frameworks for ICT, learning management systems and professional learning programs.
Her passion is for delivering professional learning, one on one mentoring or in small group sessions, for educators, at both schools and universities. Until 2016, she was co-convenor of a postgraduate education unit Technologies in Practice at Macquarie University, teaching both face-to-face and online.
Her work has included strategic planning for technology integration, overseeing the implementation of a portal built on SharePoint, project management of an e-learning platform, and investigating learning management systems.
In keeping with her belief in life-long learning, Pam has completed a Certificate IV in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and now volunteers as a tutor in the Australian Migrant English Program (AMEP).
