Hello Everyone, I hope you are enjoying Week #12. Thank you so much for your great work on the discussion board this week. I really enjoyed reading, listening to and watching all of your mini case study presentations. I gave an extra special shout out to those of you who opted to use ipadio or YouTube. Thank you for experimenting with that technology. Of course a script is completely acceptable for this assignment, as well. I think you all chose very interesting international sties to do a case study about and I think we have a diverse collection of sites, as well, to help us see how Adult Education programs operate in other parts of the world. So, thank you again for your hard work on those. I am in the process of scoring your mini case study papers. All of your scores will be returned by Friday. As always if you have a question or concern about a score you received please don’t hesitate to contact me. I am always willing to chat with you about your scores and I want to make sure that everyone receives the score they deserve. Thank you also for the other half of our discussion this week. You are discussing the chapters you chose to read in the Handbook of Adult and Continuing Education. I think some excellent lines of discussion have been spurred from your chapter reviews about issues relating to educating older adults, issues related to gender, sexual orientation, race, etc. These are very important conversations and I’m really enjoying the threads that has taken place and have evolved on our discussion board this week. Thank you again. This week, in addition to our discussion, you have a personal entry due. This week you’ll be exploring a non-formal or informal adult education program that you have that you have participated in. If you haven’t posted your personal entry yet you have until the end of the day on Saturday. At this point, your next big paper assignment is the micro-teaching lesson plan. That is due on May 3. Please take a look at the assignment guidelines for that assignment. Begin thinking about and working on that assignment, because it will come up very quickly. The micro-teaching lesson plan assignment is a paper assignment that you turn in and then we will be working in small groups so that you can actually teach your lesson to your peers in our course. So plan to turn in that paper copy and also be prepared to do some online teaching as part of your micro-teaching lesson plan. If you haven’t explored with Ipadio or YouTube yet, the micro- teaching lesson teaching opportunity will be a great time for you to do so. Every presentation should include some audio or video component when you are teaching your lesson during that discussion week. I just want to remind everyone that I post video and audio content in your weekly folders every week. That content is related to adult education and in most cases directly related to the topics we are discussing in class during that week. Please be sure to watch or listen to the content that I post in your folders. If you miss the content you can always go back to previous weekly folders to watch or listen to any video or audio content that you’ve missed. Next week I’ve put in a very interesting piece about adult education and autism. I strongly encourage you to watch /listen to that content and listen to how issues such as autism impact adult education in learning settings. Thanks again for all of your time this week. I am finishing up my Wednesday office hours today at noon and as you know I am doing a special set of office hours tomorrow, on Thursday, from 8am-9am. Have a great week everyone!
Greetings fellow runners...I'm STILL Steve Runner, even though...I really can't run for awhile. Injury has fallen upon me to the point where the pain is too excessive to run. No worries though! I'm still losing weight (much more slowly) and keeping busy staring at walls, watching snow melt, grass grow, paint dry and lot's of exciting stuff. Listen in, or fall asleep. GO SOX!
