John Hurst's Teaching Interests

Learning can be defined as the relatively permanent change in an individual's behavior or behavior potential (or capability) as a result of experience or practice. Teaching can be thought of as the purposeful direction and management of the learning process.

I have a page of Some Quotable Teaching Quotes. Makes for some interesting reading, and sets the scene for some of the initiatives I am trying to pursue in the teaching arena..


I am currently demonstrating in FIT2085 Introduction to computer science for engineers


Educational Technology

This topic is better covered under my research section, but I include a few links here to interesting articles.

Education and Learning
I have completed the Graduate Certificate in Higher Education, run by the Higher Education and Development Unit.
Higher Education Partnerships in Communication and Information Technology is a Monash University group, established in early 1994. HEPCIT provides a forum for discussions about the use of technology in teaching and learning, and is open to all Monash University staff. (from the web page)
