CQUni showcases distance education in Emerald
Published on 27 February, 2013
The annual Orientation Day for distance students was held recently at CQUniversity's Emerald Learning Centre. It was a day of motivational learning for everyone.
Distance education provides flexibility for students and is often the best option for people who are juggling work and study.
Gai Sypher, Operations and Project Manager says "we believe it is important for our first-year students to know there is a support network here to help them and that is what our Orientation program aims to demonstrate".
"In particular, this helps our distance students reduce stress as they begin their tertiary education," Mrs Sypher says.
"All students in the region, whether they are studying internally or by distance education, are encouraged to use our facilities here at the Emerald Learning Centre. Academic workshops are regularly offered as a support service to our students and all are invited to attend the up-coming workshops on March 9 and March16.
CQUniversity Lecturer from the School of Nursing and Midwifery, Teresa Sander says that, as one of Australia's leading distance education universities, "we at CQUniversity pride ourselves on providing quality distance education to our students to produce work-ready graduates".
