So some time ago I started teaching online, and it has been a rocky transition. There are things about online that I really love, ways to link outside of the lecture and the text to others wisdom, to video and papers and blogs, places I might find a spark that ignites deep learning in my students. But it is also a struggle to put me in that course, so there is a direct connection, face time. I decided I need to learn more about online learning and so have decided to bite the bullet and register for my first MOOC. So for the next few months I’ll be blogging about what I learn about online learning and the potential for technology, and about myself as a teacher. I hope with everything I have going on in the studio I will be able to get something valuable out of it. And also that I won’t look or sound dumb – not having a background in education!!
