When I finished my Provincial Instructor’s Diploma Program (PIDP) in the summer of 2018 one of my instructors recommended the Online/eLearning Instruction Certificate. I laughed and thought to myself, “nope, never teaching online.”
Well here we are in March of 2020. The Covid-19 Pandemic has struck and like many other profs, I found myself going from the ordinary face to face instruction to online learning – over a weekend. Fortunately for me the two courses I was teaching already had a strong online presence. I was using our LMS for content sharing, assignment submissions, and student communication. It has still been a rocky transition. So here I am taking EDUC 4150 with the hopes of being more prepared for the fall semester.
