Scott is an Information Technology teacher at Melbourne Polytechnic. He has studied across various aspects of the multimedia spectrum including website development, video editing, 3D modelling and game design. Scott uses his industry experience to provide industry insider knowledge to his students, especially in the area of freelance work planning and undertaking client projects.
As a relatively new teacher in the VET space, Scott brings industry knowledge to the classroom and ensures the students know how to apply it practically. He endeavours to make all of the learning material as engaging as possible. Knowing that not every student is interested in programming or website development makes teaching interesting for Scott, finding ways to make students engaged in the subject by providing examples relevant to the student makes his classroom a dynamic environment. He also enjoys having the opportunity to see students develop skill sets, even the ones they are not initially interested in.
Scott completed a Bachelor of Arts in Games Graphics Design at RMIT University in 2010, before formalising his skills in website development with a Diploma of Information Technology in 2016 and Advanced Diploma of Computer Systems Technology in 2017. At the 2018 Melbourne Polytechnic graduation Scott was awarded the School of Engineering, Design and Construction Student of the Year Award for his contribution to the team project to create websites for the Whittlesea and Banyule-Nillumbik Tech Schools.
