Hello Everyone, I hope you are enjoying Week #11. That’s right we are getting to the end of the semester. It comes so quickly! Thank you all for a great discussion this week. We are still continuing our conversation of formal and non-formal forms of adult education and we are getting into some discussion about the import issues of oppression and privilege within the field. You will be taking ADE 655 as part of the Master’s Degree program in Adult Education. I teach that course and of course that particular course focuses on adult education and its connection to oppression and privilege to society. So you’ll have an entire course to dig deeper into those issues later in your time here in the Adult Education program. My research is in social class oppression as well as oppression based on gender and based on location in society, so these issues are very exciting for me and you may see me jump in on the board to ask some clarifying questions and to move our discussion forward. In addition, your follow up discussion for this week is around education and globalization. You’ve read several chapters on international issues in adult education and this is the discussion thread where you can discuss those further. If you have an interest in international adult education we will be offering an elective course in the fall. That course “international adult education” will be taught by Rachel Dominguez one of our wonderful lectures. I encourage you to speak to your advisor if your interest in taking that class. Registration for fall and summer courses begins tomorrow April 9. Please touch base with your advisor to help you come up with a plan for course mapping throughout the program. If you’re looking for a summer course, I’ll be teaching ADE 660: Grant Writing for Education and Training during the A session this summer and I’d love to have any and all of you in that class. But don’t worry if you don’t take that class you’ll have at least one more opportunity to work with me in the program in ADE 655 and potentially ADE 689, the research course, as well. Speaking of international adult education, this Saturday you have your mini case study in international adult education due. You will be finding information for this case study largely through the internet. You can do a search of the type of adult education that you’re interested in, such as literacy education, and find out what programs are available internationally. Then you can pick an international program to find out as much information as you can about that program and then compare it to how literacy education or whatever type of education you choose operates here in the United States. As always, please feel free to email me questions directly through the “Send Mail” function in our Blackboard course site or post the questions on the “Ask the Instructor” discussion board. Often times if you have a question your peers may be having the same question, so it’s wonderful to ask those questions on the “Ask the Instructor” board. Next week you will be presenting your mini case study as part of your discussion First Post. It will be your entire discussion first post. You will have the option to use a YouTube video, an ipadio Phonecast, or to post a script. If you haven’t tried to use one of our alternative forms of technology such as ipadio or YouTube video, I strongly encourage you to do so during this discussion board opportunity. It’s great to learn different types of media that you can use later on in your career in adult education. Unfortunately, ipadio recently got rid of the text to speech function. This was heartbreaking for me because I use ipadio so often. So please post a script or a description of your presentation along with any ipadio phone cast that you do. There are many different tools available for free online to do free text to script transcription. You can search those on the internet. If anyone really likes a particular text to speech tool, please post information about it on the “Ask the Instructor” board or on the Bulletin Board. Thanks so much for your help with that! This week I have my regular office hours. I’m just finishing them up now. I also have them tomorrow, Wednesday, from 8am-12pm. Next week my office hours will be slightly different. I will have my Wednesday office hours from 8am-12pm but instead of Tuesday office hours, I will have officer hours on Thursday morning from 8am-9am. As always you are welcome to email me, call or stop in during those times and if those times aren't convenient please send me a note and I’ll try to find an alternative time to meet with you. In addition to my change in office hours next week, you will be receiving my phonecast a day later on Wednesday. Thanks everyone for all your hard work good luck with your mini case studies. I am really excited to see, hear and read your presentations about those case studies next week!

Hello Everyone, I hope you all had a terrific spring break! Thank you for turning in your Site Visit Reports. I scored them all within a couple of days, so you should have your scores back. The only exception is the two papers that got caught up in the error on Blackboard. The papers showed in my grade box but unfortunately I couldn’t open them. I did send emails to the two people that need to resubmit their papers. I am so sorry for the inconvenience. I do not control the Blackboard platform so when there’s a problem I have to work through the SUNY Learning Network and often they can’t get me an answer for several days or as in the last couple of cases, they can’t figure out an answer at all. So again, I am really sorry for these technical problems. I do my best to keep everything running smoothly. I promise you these problems bother me as much as they bother you. In the future, if there’s every a problem in the dropbox please just email me your paper- that is not a problem for me at all. I never want you be inconvenienced by these problems with the Blackboard platform. This week we are having an awesome discussion as we are watching and listening to and reading all of you presentations about your many different and interesting sites visit. I really like this week because we are all learning the many career options that are available in Adult Education. The possibilities are really almost endless in what you can do with your Adult Education degree, and I really like giving you all the opportunity to learn as much as you can about the Adult Education opportunities available in the community. The discussion board is open now it will be open until 10pm on Wednesday. Not only will we be engaging with our presentations, but you’ll also be going back to the readings that were done on March 23 to talk about the formal and informal chapters that you choose about these Adult Education providers. Talking about these chapters gives us another opportunity to learn more about the many different options available in the Adult Education field. In addition to our discussion this week, our educational autobiographies are due as a personal entry on Saturday. We’re actually at I believe Part 4 of our educational autobiography. We are moving on from talking about K-12 education to talking about our experiences in undergrad education. I look forward to reading all of your journal responses. Next week we actually have another paper assignment due. This is your Mini Case Study of an International Adult Education Provider. The assignment guidelines are posted in the assignment guidelines folder, and of course you may ask me about this assignment at any time via the “Ask the Instructor” discussion board or by contacting me directly via email. Most of you will do your research for this paper assignment through the Internet. Please very carefully cite all of your sources. Because you’ll be using the Internet I expect much of your paper to include cited material. As we are talking about citation and APA style, I want to remind all of you to keep working on your APA style and to carefully review those APA style guidelines. In the Site Visit papers there were many APA style errors remaining, so I’m going to refer you again back to the Harvard APA style tutorial and the Purdue APA style guide. It is really important that you master APA style during your time in this course so that you are prepared to take the comprehensive examination for graduation in the future. If you have questions about APA style you are welcome to contact me, and you’re also welcome to join the ADE Writing Forum. Any student in the Adult Education program is welcome to join the Writing Forum to work with the Writing Coach on format, grammar and APA style. Please send me an email if you would like to join the Writing Forum. Last but not least, I am finishing up my office hours for today and I will have my regular office hours tomorrow which are Wednesday from 8am-12pm. Next week, I will also have office hours on Tuesday from 8am-9am and Wednesday from 8am-12pm. This weekend I’ll be traveling to Philadelphia for the AERA annual meeting. It is one of the largest and most important conferences in education every year in the United States. It draws scholars from around the country and around the globe and I’ll have the opportunity to share some of my research on high school STEM opportunity structures at the annual meeting. Because I’ll be in Philadelphia I might have a slightly slower response time for email and the “Ask the Instructor” discussion board. However, I promise I will meet my guaranteed 24hours response time. So please, don’t hesitate to send me questions or post questions or concerns on the “Ask the Instructor” board. I think that’s all for this week. Thanks again for all of your hard work! Have a great week and weekend.
