Hello Everyone, I hope you are enjoying Week #7. This week we are having a discussion about transformative learning experiences, as well as thinking through some of the issues in adult development and how they relate to adult education. We are also continuing our very important conversation on access to both adult education programs and classrooms. One of the most important things we can do as adult educators is to promote welcoming learning environments and this week we are continuing our conversation of how we can do that. The discussion board is now open. There is a somewhat higher requirement for posts this week. Since we have such a small class, our conversations haven’t been quite as robust as I think they can be. So I have upped the requirement of the posts a little bit hoping to inspire more meaningful interactions between peers on the discussion board. As a reminder, the discussion board is our class time each week. In the program we are required, to be certified to give you a Master’s degree here at Buffalo State, to have a set class time class time every week and that time is our discussion board. So please plan to spend about the same amount of time you would spend in a face to face classroom on the online discussion board, and that is about 2 hours and 40 minutes. We also do a personal journal entry, so that can be included as part of that time as well. Speaking of personal journals, this week you will be completing your mid-course review. This gives a chance to reflect on your reading and the work you’ve done in the course to date and to think through what value you found so far in the activities, discussion, papers, and reading that we’ve done. I love getting feedback on the course! Please do not feel you need to censor yourself. This journal is for you, so you should be very honest with yourself about the things that are working really well and if you have any concerns you should feel free to share them. As always, I have office hours this week, today on Tuesday I had them, and I will have them tomorrow on Wednesday 8am-12pm. As always, you are welcome to contact me at any time to set up an alternative time to meet and you are welcome to email me questions or concerns any time, or post them on the “Ask the Instructor” discussion board which is now working in both sections of AED 500. So last week, you received back your Adult Education Definition and Postionality papers. You all should have your scores and detailed comments from both the Writing Coach and myself. I hope you found this detailed feedback to be useful. This paper is generally one of the more difficulty papers in the program, because it’s the first paper you often write and it is scored very strictly for both grammar and APA style, as well as for content. Don’t be discouraged if you struggled with citation or if you struggled for grammar or formatting or APA style. All of this is something we want to catch in the first paper in the program so that you have time to work with our free Writing Coach to improve your writing skills, so by the time that you get ready to do your comprehensive exam for graduation you are ready to pass that exam. We never want to have a student pass all of their courses and then find they are unable to write a passing comprehensive examination. So if you have been referred to the Writing Coach, please take advantage of the free service that we offer for you. Additionally, those APA sources are available in our Assignment Guidelines folder. There’s a link to the Purdue Owl APA guide and the Harvard APA tutorial and there are also videos about plagiarism. As a reminder, plagiarism is a major ethical violation so you must site any words that are not your own using quote marks or a block quote and you must site any idea that is not your own with a reference at the end of the sentence or thought. You should at this point be working on the next paper assignment which is the Site Visit Report. That report is due before spring break, next week on March 22. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns about this assignment. We will not be using the “Turnitin” drop box and I will not be sending this to the Writing Coach. I will look at this assignment mainly for content and I will give you comments for your APA style and grammar. If you don’t try to APA at all I will take off points. So please do try to use APA style and try to have great grammar and format, but again I will be grading mainly for content in this assignment. I can’t wait to see the site visits you choose to conduct and to see where you choose to go to do your site visit. We will all be learning about each others’ site visits during the discussion when we return from spring break, Week #10. I will post the presentation guidelines for that discussion next week so that you will be able to work on that presentation discussion over spring break. If you choose to so you will actually have over a week to get that discussion post ready, if you would like to work on it early. If not, you’re welcome to work on it the weekend before the discussion begins, as usual. Thanks again for all of your hard work everyone! I hope you have a terrific week and I look forward to reading your mid-course review.
