Justine Poidevin, Children's Services

Our teacher Justine Poidevin

As Head Teacher of Children's Services at TAFE Illawarra's Wollongong Campus, Justine provides new ways of learning for students, and demonstrates outstanding innovation, teaching prowess and e-learning capabilities.

"A couple of years ago a colleague and I saw the need to offer a different style of delivery, to enable our courses to be more flexible," said Justine.

"We built the Diploma of Children's Services qualification onto a Moodle (e-learning software) platform and moved all the resources online.

"We didn't want to run an online course where students were only in isolation in front of a computer; we wanted them to be part of an online class interacting with tutors and other students. So we regularly run interactive online tutorials."

In 2012 Justine received a Minister's Quality Teaching Award.
