CyberGuru’s Chief Guru Chris Jeffery was recently appointed as a Fellow of the Australian Computer Society (ACS) at the recent ACS Queensland Fellows lunch.

A Fellow is a “person who has made a distinguished contribution to the field of ICT in Australia and is a member of the professional division of ACS”.

Chris was recognised for his “distinguished contribution to ICT in Australia by making it possible for marginalised groups in our society to access and use ICT technology successfully. He has used his skills across ICT hardware and software platforms on a voluntary and pro bono basis to assist a wide variety of such groups, including remote and isolated communities, and a number of Seniors groups. He is particularly recognised for his work in upskilling educators in both the secondary and VET (Vocational Education and Training) sectors enabling them to maintain industry currency and to provide and deliver authentic learning experiences to their students. He is involved in the community as a judge for awards, a member of ACS course accreditation panels, mentoring students, and presenting on ‘staying safe online’.”
