"I was able to think about how a lot of the choices I'm making as an educator already align with education theory, but now I am able to see how and why and be more intentional about it in the future."
"I particularly liked interacting with my classmates through the discussion board. It was great to get feedback on my own teaching and get ideas and from others in the field. I felt very supported yet challenged throughout this course."
"I feel I benefited from this course in a number of ways--putting a name and context to processes I already use as a teacher, learning more ways to apply these processes through the course material and from other teachers taking the course, and focusing on processes used by both the teacher and the students. I really liked the combined theoretical/practical approach the course took--the theory on which each module centered, the practical applications I do use/could use as a teacher, and the theoretical/practical approaches taken by other students on the course."
"I explored different ways to teach some activities I was already teaching. I liked the fast paced timing. Short 4 weeks."
"This course has helped me be a better communicator to my students. Through the other teachers (who were learning with me) their input and ideas has helped me tremendously to create material for my classes."
"I did find myself approaching classes differently after the readings that were assigned in the class. Many of the topics covered are things I talk about with colleagues, so it was nice to have solid proof of my musings!"
