Twisty’s Introduction

G’day everyone.

I’m David (“twisty” to my friends) of Gundaroo (near Canberra). I’m 45 years old, married with children and grandchildren. I’m a casual vocational education and training teacher, beef cattle farmer and (once again) keen student.

I’m enrolled via OUA and have completed ONE whole subject to date (Careers and Work @ MQ). I don’t, at the moment, have any specific plans as to what I might do with any degree that I might achieve. I’m doing it for my own education and satisfaction. Gratefully, I’m not burdened with the need of education for profit.

Philosophy has captured my imagination and I’ll pursue this as my major. My first unit is Philosophy, Morality and Society starting …. hhhmmmmm …. Monday. I’m also interested in virtual learning as a teacher because I teach business admin via WebCT. I’m curious to see if I can find any philosophical foothold teaching “Excel”.
I look forward to discussion outside “blackboard”.

    Welcome Twisty and have fun with the philosophy studies.

    When you get into the ethics subjects I’m sure there’ll be something to talk about with your ‘beef cattle’ farming.

    Hey David, welcome aboard.

    Hope you enjoy MQ’s morality unit.

    G’day Twisty… Welcome to the fray!

    Philosophy and Excel??? Ah, that would fall under Business and Professional Ethics – the whole Microsoft “non-monopoly” monopoly, forcing the less informed into using (in some cases) inferior products… I am sure Simon will have something to say about all that, being the open source guru around here!
