What I valued most about today. · Networking ·Ideas from others ·New programs ·Looking at Martine & Kim's work ·Studying different elements of blackboard etc... all of actually ·Getting the new online resources such as LORN, Teaching Tube and finding out what Innovations do!!!! ·Help & support of other teachers about how to go about setting up my first online session also how I can use different technology to do this. ·The sharing of ideas, brain storming, showcasing projects. ·The time to come here and be amongst my peers talking about online learning, listening and learning more, more, more. Then having the inspiration to explore, explore, explore. ·The opportunity to meet with other educators and to hear their stories of the solutions and shallenges they face in delivering online learning
Right now my top priority is: · To come up with a creative and effective way to improve the delivery of the metering course. ·To allow myself the time to commit to this priority. Why? Cause it would be advantageous not only to me but to the learners as well. ·Ensuring that the students have access to the required information in an easy to access format which is also time effective for me. ·Working out a structure for a course. ·Making my online course easy to use and understand for my students and making it somewhat enjoyable. ·To hopefully set up my teaching session online and hopefully support my colleague with more confidence. ·Meeting with Malcolm having reflected on what is and isn't working and going online to look for resources.
