  1. Hi Everyone, I’m Les Henson and I have just returned from holidays and like many others I am overwelmed by so many emails. I am Senior Lecturer in Mission Studies at Tabor Victoria in the School of Theology and Context. Like Rika and Yr (Colleagues at Tabor), I am hoping to experiment with different types of blended learning. I have used Moodle for the past six years, regularly use both powerpoint and Youtube downloads, and currently trialing a student run website for learning and assessment. Yet overall I feel like a beginner to all of this. I am interested in using TEL in the classromm and for online students in an appropriate manner. I would like to learn to use a variety of new technological approaches and discover the appropriateness of each approach for the tasks at hand. For me its all about appropriateness and what actually enhances student learning.
