After an enjoyable first week of the EDUC 4151 course, I wanted to pause and reflect before moving onto the Week 2 course material. First of all, I am thrilled with the course instructor. She has proven to be organized, friendly, approachable, and so much more. She has already set a great example for us as budding online instructors and I think I will learn a lot from her, directly and indirectly. Second, it’s great to be back with the same classmates again. We all suffered through the poorly-run EDUC 4150 course last semester and that somehow brought us closer together. I’m used to having different peers in each course I take, so it’s nice to “see” familiar faces. Finally, starting my own blog has been an interesting process. It’s been fun to learn the ins and outs of blogging – something completely new to me. I’ve personalized my blog and created categories for my posts, but I can already see some flaws in my categorization system so I will need to work on that this week. Hopefully I can get it organized before the volume of posts increases further.
I’ve enjoyed the course so far and am looking forward to this week’s topics!
