Last Post 2006 - Hibernation
The Last Post For 2006 Is Written - Photo by Daniel
Yep; sadly this is the last post for The Gong Media blog 2006. The blog will now hibernate until early February 2007 when the new Editor will take over.
Since August the production of this blog has personally been a huge scary learning curve which quickly became an enjoyable experience.
I am sure that I speak on behalf of the rest of the Diploma students in thanking all who have helped us to attain our Diplomas - Dept. Head Ellen (left) and members of her staff (pictured below) Penny, Lyn, Gary, Dragica, Geoff and Peter. The "extra yards" that all of you have put in for us is very much appreciated.
I feel that we have all obtained the objective described in "Our Purpose" written at the top of the blog. It is rumoured that the Media and Communication Dept has been noticed to have done well with the extremely limited resources that were available in 2006 and that there will be more "tools" made available for 2007.
I would also like to thank all of my fellow students for their contributions.
Many personal thanks to the TLRU unit staff and especially the legendary computer geek Jo Kay who introduced me to Web 2.0 and the wonderful world of e-communication.
Not to forget Cindy and the friendly staff at the ITSA canteen and coffee shop who thtopped me from thtarving. The book shop staff as well.
Hopefully this blog can develop into the hub of communication between teachers and students (including ex students) in the Media and Communication section of Wollongong TAFE. Expansion with contact to other TAFEs is an achievable ambition so if you are at another TAFE and read this don't be a stranger. Let us know you are there.
The best thing about this communication tool is that all of this stuff here is not locked away in a dusty cupboard never to see the light of day. It is all here for all of you to use and share. It is not the property of the Editor. It belongs to all of you!! Please take ownership of it.
Parting words? TAFE's great mate! Wish you were here.
Happy Christmas to all of you and good luck to the next Editor.
