    I'm doing this course too! I can't wait to start. Also doing the heavier workload I'm in Brisbane, but would be great to chat to fellow classmates!
    Also finding oasis very confusing! It's a bit overwhelming trying to figure it all out!

    Hello there

    I'm starting off on two modules :
    EDP120 - Introduction to Teaching &
    EDP125 - development and Education.

    I already have both books, I got them second hand but in good condition.
    How about you WorkingClassMum?

    Missemzy, I'm hoping I can do as well as you! lol.

    It's so great to see that so many others are doing this too, or are ahead of us!
    I can't see my modules yet when I go into Blackboard (only in Oasis)... is it the same for you?

    yay! Another one! I'm in Western Sydney

    I was thinking about starting up a Facebook page ... I think students from OUA do this sometimes when in the same course to discuss topics. Would anyone be interested in joining if I did this???

    Sorry to derail, but do you know what you are thinking about doing your masters in? I am also a school teacher (currently SAHM) but would like to perhaps do my masters when I am still a SAHM but my kids are a little older - I'm not too sure about what the options are, I know I could do special ed, but it's not really a passion of mine, I was thinking about doing teacher librarianship? What were you thinking of doing, and what other options do you know of?

    I honestly have no idea at this stage lol i was thinking leadership or theology (to work in catholic schools). I will probably pick something up 2nd semester. The guilt of having DD in childcare 4 days a week is starting to set in as
    I didnt think it would be this hard to find a job - i would be happy with 1 day a week but so far nothing. I live in quiet a big city and have been everywhere within an hour of my house!

    sorry it's been so hard to find a job, sometimes it takes a quite a while, especially when there is a big influx of graduates! I think that relief teaching is especially scarce in the first part of term 1, and I know that a lot of schools hire staff who have done relief teaching for them, so that makes it difficult if you have a DD and perhaps are unable to do relief work.

    I don't know if this is viable for you, but when I was teaching, I had a qualified teacher who was unable to find work ring up our school and say that she was available for volunteer work - working with small groups for reading, etc. This is especially valuable for a private school, where they get less funding for support for children with special needs. She worked as a volunteer at my school for a term, and did a few days of relief teaching during that time, and then was given a job the following term. Because she was already in the school environment, she knew the children, etc. she had a huge advantage when she went for the job.


    I would LOVE to do some sort of theology or bible college, I'm not sure if it would help with my job prospects later on, but I would definitely find it interesting! I would prefer not to work as a full-time classroom teacher probably while my kids are in primary school, because I found it a very all-consuming job (especially in a private school with high standards), and I would really love to study something that might help me have a part-time teaching job, which is why I have been leaning toward librarianship - plus, it's an area that I enjoy.

    Hi everyone

    If anyone's interested, I've started a FB group. It's a locked group, so you have to request joining.

    The link is here:

    http://www.facebook.com/groups/321417897904925/

    It's called: Bachelor of Primary Education


    Even if you're almost done, your input would be greatly valued if you have time!

    Thanks that info is very helpful - i never even considered volunteering! Guess its better then sitting at home while im paying for childcare fees! Also a great way to learn a lot more without having the whole class responsibility.
    I have seen a lot of library jobs advertised (in NSW) and reading recovery.

    I have done the certificate in religious education so theology would just be an upgrade from that :-) thanks again for being so helpful and listening to my whinge! Sorry for crashing the thread lol
