Hello from Whitehorse!

by Susan Glynn-Morris - Monday, 17 September 2018, 7:22 AM

Good Morning!

I have recently started as an Instructional Designer in the Teaching and Learning Team at Yukon College. I am also studying Instructional Design, in my spare time (haha) at Athabasca U. I am really excited to dive into rubrics with you all this week. Here is a pic of a hike I did with my two kiddos a couple weeks ago, near Whitehorse. Fall has definitely arrived here!

My name is Daniella and I am an Instructional Designer/Coordinator in the Emergency Management division at the Justice Institute of British Columbia. I have 15 years of experience supporting and teaching elementary, secondary, and post-secondary students. Most recently, I worked at SFU’s Teaching and Learning Centre working with senior administration to revamp their teacher assessment policy; and then at UBC’s med school involved in curriculum redevelopment and creating student exams and clinical assessments. I was formerly a mental health researcher and clinician, which influences my evidence-based, humanistic, student-centered approach to teaching. I'm hoping this course can be a helpful refresher for me. :)

I'm Mark (@mcorbettwilson) a retired scientific glassblower, lifelong learner and returning adult student. I recently completed two Associate's degrees in Liberal Arts and Sociology and am completing a Bachelor's degree online in the College of Individualized Studies at Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, Minnesota. I'm the first Metro State student to be allowed to use my personal eportfolio, on my own domain, for prior learning assessment for college credit.

Although I live in Oakland, California, I've spent much of my past three summers in BC. This year I attended the Festival of Learning in Vancouver where I learned about FLO courses. I then attended my third Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria. (and JazzFest!) I finished my stay in BC at Capilano University for the Association for Authentic, Experiential, and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL) eportfolio conference, where I made my first conference presentations.

I traveled between Vancouver and Victoria on the newest and fastest Prince of Whales vessel, the 24-metre Salish Sea Dream. Reading more about orcas after returning home, I realized I saw one quarter to one third of the remaining orca population in the San Juan Islands. The photos are mine: I 'borrowed' the Salish Sea Dream rendering from the Times-Colonist, for educational purposes. I like the orca leaping out of the water. ;-)

Hi from South Surrey

by Sue Hellman - Tuesday, 18 September 2018, 12:36 PM

I'm Sue Hellman, a retired high school teacher formerly with CEET which used to offer online mini-moocs to educators in BC and beyond. I was also worked in the UNB CETL (Centre for Enhanced Teaching & Learning) for a while until I became ill & had to come back home. Now I take on projects and jobs that interest and challenge me such as powerpoint coaching and working on my own mobile app. In Feb. I'm giving a workshop at a conference for California math teachers on helping students recover from 'math zombieism, and late this November I'll be leading the FLO MicroCourse on writing a teaching philosophy statement. If you preview that offering, please take a moment to fill in the questionnaire. Whether you take the course or not, your feedback will be helpful to me. Thanks.

Hi from SylviaR

Good morning everyone!

Syl-rocksI'm Sylvia Riessner, a long time educator and learning designer, currently living on lovely Vancouver Island.

I spent the first part of my professional life working for industry and colleges in BC and then moved to Yukon and worked for Yukon College and and other organizations. As a cloud-based consultant, I still work for clients in the North and BC - and get to spend time kayaking, exploring the intertidal zones, and playing with my chocolate lab, Kiwi.

I signed up for this micro-course to get a sense of how this type of learning design works  As a FLO facilitator, I like xploring different perspectives ;-)

Looking forward to the week and learning with all of you!
