Here's Why You Need an E-Learning Portfolio » The Rapid eLearning Blog - 5 views

    • Dennis OConnor
      This is an excellent idea for both instructional design and online teaching.  I wish I'd captured a few artifacts from the dozens of classes I taught for a private university.  As it was, all I had was a list of course titles I'd taught. (Which certainly helped my credibility)
  • Build a case study for each project.  It doesn’t need to be overly fancy.  Describe the project objectives, what you did, and the results. If you have examples add them.  If not, at least try to add some screenshots. 
  • Create a blog to document your learning.

      Blogs can be idea factories where you publish first draft thinking (with a bit of polish).  You can then revisit your earlier ideas and revise and re-purpose your work for your portfolio.  Alternately you can link to your active blogs to give a potential employer a sense of your current thinking and interests. 
  • Network with others.  A portfolio’s no good if you have no place to show it(your blog) or share it (your network).  The good thing with blogging and other social tools like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter is that you connect with others in the industry.  You’ll learn a lot and others will get to know you and your skills.  It’s a great way to prepare for opportunities.  Just ask Cammy.
  • Opportunities exist.  However, when you’re not prepared, you don’t bother looking; and if you do look, you don’t always know what to look for. 
  • n addition, because you maintain a portfolio of your skills, you’re more apt to think about the skills you need for the portfolio.  It then becomes a motivator to learn more.
  • Too many people told me that they couldn’t share what they were working on.  This makes sense for the organization, but not for you.  Don’t allow their content to make your skills proprietary, as well.  In the same sense, don’t let their lower expectations define your skills. 
  • If you lose your job, you could be flushing a lot of your work down the drain.  One day you’re happy at work and the next you’re out on the street with no access to your projects or the tools used to build them.  For these reasons, it’s important to maintain a portfolio.
  • Do you have examples of different approaches to learning and course design.
  • If all things are equal, I’ll take someone with a strong sense of visual design because it crosses into other areas like engagement, communication, and usability.
  • Don’t show me 400 courses that all look the same.
  • They don’t need to be complete courses.
  • So for me there’s two types of writing: technical and conversational.
  • You don’t need to be a software engineer, but you should know the essence of the technologies and how they work.

Teaching: No 'Fallback' Career - - 3 views

  • Good teachers must also be connoisseurs of error. Over time, good teachers can anticipate predictable errors and misconceptions, understand the logic behind the error, and help move students toward a deeper understanding.
  • As Malcolm Gladwell convincingly pointed out in a recent New Yorker article, identifying the quality of teaching prospects is as difficult as identifying what college quarterbacks will make it in the N.F.L. “There are certain jobs,” wrote Gladwell, “where almost nothing you can learn about candidates before they start predicts how they’ll do once they are hired.”
  • Some years ago I read the following quote: “No one, not even a farmer, works as hard as a caring teacher, but there is nothing lazier than an uncaring one.” I felt both intimidated and comforted by this — I had the option of working hard and being socially ranked just above farmer or I could be lazier than a pillow tester.

  • More emphasis must be placed on retaining the good teachers who, after two or three years, begin to wonder if there is more to life than working harder than a farmer.
  • Properly done, teaching is both the hardest and the easiest job one can do, if one can do it.
  • I am now in my 14th year. Despite my age (I was 49 when I got my own classroom) and supposed maturity, it took me until my third year before I was fully competent, even though the students, parents, fellow teachers and administrators were all pleased with what I was doing. I learned to rethink each lesson, from class to class as well as from year to year, and to adjust my lesson plans according to the students in each class.
