Well the time has come ladies and gentlemen. We have reached the end of this semester and it has all been leading up this moment. How do I feel about it you ask? I’m overwhelmed mostly and vaguely surprised that it’s over already.
I’m having that typical end of the semester syndrome…every assignment is due one after another and each class has up to three major projects that must all be done by the second to last week of May. How did I get so jumbled up? On a brighter note, I have had a blast. This was the very first online class I’ve ever had where we were required to meet in an electronic classroom and I gotta say I love a new experience. I learned a lot in 407, freshened up on a lot of skills I already had, and made some pretty amazing projects that I am looking forward to showing off to people. My favorite examples would be my E Portfolio and eventually the WebQuest I will complete because both explain who I am in different ways.
This class covered a lot of new teaching techniques and I discovered that there are a lot of people out there who think about work the way that I do. We all want to be great teachers and that’s what it’s all about. Nori as a professor, is in a word, vibrant. She’s always excited about something, even when the room is dead silent she makes all the noise for us. That’s always a plus in a teacher I suppose.
My group mates consisted of like minded people for the most part and although I prefer to do all my work alone it wasn’t the worst thing ever to have the partners I had during this semester. Overall I had a good time, and I am coming out of this ready to apply all that I have learned in the field. I’m ready to challenge students to take their education to the next level and I must admit that’s probably the coolest part of what I got from this class.
