My Learning Reflections - 1 views

  • What I have found is teaching presence not only occurs in a face to face classroom but also online, if you look at it, they kind of are the SAME thing. The online platform is the classroom; we shouldn’t change it to make it suitable for online, we should do just as we would if it was face to face.

      Brilliant!
  • I feel accomplished that I gained so much from this course.
  • as an educator my job is to keep pushing and asking those questions

  • What I learned from that is to push myself continuously to learn more, to teach my classmates more, because in the end I learned THAT MUCH MORE!
  • I know I learned a lot, mainly because I was and am able to produce what has been asked of me and will remember how to do it.

  • I recall in my early SLN days trying to find out why faculty were being told to close past modules as they moved forward in the course

      Not sure where this comes from linda, but it is not so. the exact opposite is true.

      odd... i actually in the early days strongly recommended that faculty have all their modules open from the first day so that students could see the structure and flow of the course from the beginning and have the structure help them not only anticipate what was coming, but act as advanced organizers to help students understand the scope and approach to the content taken by the instructor. I also didn't want faculty to use it as an excuse to not complete the course before it went live : ) I keep the modules closed in ETAP640 and reveal them one at a time because i don't want to confuse and overwhelm students. But, i have always maintained that work in previous modules should remain open and accessible so that students can refer back to or continue conversations if they want to. If you close a module then students won't have access to their own content. I would have to be convinced that under some very specific circumstance that there would be a good reason to do that. : )
  • because my exploration was respected. This kind of supportive environment makes me – or any student I am sure – fearless
  • I can say that I think I am on a completely different level in my teaching and design work.

  • I have increased my toolkit for engaging students at multiple levels. I feel I will be more vigilant about tapping into their basic human need for challenge, while attending to their narratives. Their storylines were not always part of my approach, but now I will be watching for those.

My Online Teaching Journey | ETAP 640 - 1 views

  • I learned that the more you understand and grow the more you can offer your students.
    • alexandra m. pickett
       
      Eureka!!!
  • I feel good about what I have created and know that what I learned will help me and my students.
  • I feel accomplished!

  • I found it is the revisions and creation of the product that you learn, you learn in the doing… the applying and the creating.
  • I learned that you need to have a solid foundation to start by assessing skill levels and giving students the fundamentals is an essential process. You need to break learning up into manageable part but embed learning exercises to enhance knowledge. You have to know your audience and be aware of your assumptions. When designing a course you need to use best practices to enhance your course design. You will put a lot of time and effort in the design process… as a result expect a little blood sweat and tears (there is no guarantee you will look the same at the end :).  It is important to remember a students way of learning evolves, that means your teaching style will have to evolve too. Don’t be afraid to try new things…the more you learn the more you can offer your students.  Learn to be a self-reflective, dig deep into yourself but more importantly I learned there is a great thing to be gained in the perspective of others, value that and seek that out. This course is more than a process it is a journey!
