UO Bachelor of Data Analytics
Have been an online student for a little while while and it's somewhat obvious that online learning is in it's infancy, so I wanted to be able to work with the Students and the Uni to increase the quality of online learning.
My primary objective is to ensure that the University is listening to it's online students and implementing improvements to the online learning environment. This includes the coursework being of the same standard of quality as the on-campus courses.
My campus is wherever I decide to pull out my laptop and begin studying. This can be at work during lunch, in my bed on a Sunday morning, at my parents house, or simply at my desk. That's the best part about it - freedom of study.
To all Uni students: there's no single path through your study life, and career. I've dropped out, changed courses, gone external, and then online. I've done it all, and I'm so glad I didn't stick with what was just the first thing I thought of out of High School. I'm both studying and working in my industry and I've even looked at external certifications to propel me even further into my career. For my fellow Online students: The best advice I can give is to be self-disciplined. Drop the 'I'll do it tomorrow' attitude when it comes to logging on and doing your coursework because tomorrow will arrive, and you'll say the same thing. I fell into that trap a few times and got way behind in several courses. Being disciplined enough to stay on track can be hard with a busy schedule and ultimate freedom of study, but it's easier than catching up on weeks of work.
As many as I can make it to given my schedule! I particularly want to watch some of the UniSA volleyball games.
Bacardi & Coke, or CC & Dry if it's on tap (trust me...)
This is a very hard question because there would be so many good answers. I think I would love to have dinner and a chat with Kobe Bryant. It would be so insightful to have a chat on his winning-or-nothing mentality and figure out how that could be adapted to my own profession.
