Tutor and researcher into progression and attrition in University enabling courses
Tutor and Researcher (Former Employee) – Murdoch University – 8 December 2012
My days at Murdoch in a tutoring role involved a class of 15 students from Equity backgrounds. The preparation course provided alternative entry pathway to undergraduate study . As researcher I conducted a multivariate analysis and a thematic analysis of the student cohort to determine the significance of underrepresented background on academic achievement. I had good support and relationships with management and co-workers. The hardest part of the job was collating four years worth of student data. The best part of the job was completing the research.
Prior to working at Murdoch I worked at ECU as unit coordinator, instructional designer, learning adviser and equity liaison in the University Preparation Course. I developed instructional material in Blackboard 9 and provided student assistance in academic writing and numeracy. As equity liaison I was responsible for managing learning and assessment plans for students with a disability, medical or other equity claim.
good work life balance
none that i can think of.
