Hello Everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful week off last week and enjoyed the Thanksgiving Holiday. I am thrilled to see you all working in your small groups teaching your lessons from your Micro-Teaching Lesson Plans. By now you should have posted your lesson plan, a description about how you will teach your lesson to your peers, and also the actual teaching materials for your peers to learn about the lesson. Each lesson should take approximately 15-20 minutes, so please make sure you have enough information available for your peers, but not too much information. We all have a busy week these final weeks of our course, and we want to make sure everyone has time to participate in each lesson in their small group. I have noticed some files are available through file exchange and some are available through the discussion board, so please make sure you check both areas in the small group site. Please also remember that by the end of your discussion period you should have given your peers both a short program evaluation and a short assessment. These can be very brief, but please make sure you put in some sort of assessment for your peers and some sort of evaluation for your peers. You should probably post those by tomorrow morning at 8am to give your peers enough time to look at them. The sooner you can post them during the follow-up discussion period, the better. Thank you again for your hard work this final week of our discussion! I know it is one of our most interesting and challenging weeks, and it is wonderful to see the various ways you have chosen to teach your micro lessons for adults. As I mention previously, in the future you will be taking at least two more courses about adult education methods where you will become masters in the teaching of adults. So this week get your feet wet and have fun. In addition to our discussion this week, we do have Personal Journal Entry #9 due. It is posted and ready for you to submit anytime between now and 11:55pm on Saturday. After that, on Monday, we have two additional assignments due- the final two assignments for the semester. We have the last of our papers; the article critique, which I explained will be strictly scored for APA style and grammar, much like our initial paper- the Adult Education Positionality Paper was. So, please be very careful with APA style guidelines and with grammar and format in that Article Critique paper that is due by 11:55pm on Monday. Also, due on Monday is your Final Personal Journal Entry. It’s a reflection on the course. The questions will be ready for you on Saturday morning at 8am. So you can turn in that Personal Journal Entry any time after 8am on Saturday, and you can turn in your article critique anytime between now and 11:55pm on Monday. As always, please feel free to post any questions or concerns on the “Ask the Instructor” discussion board. I do have office hours tomorrow, which is Wednesday, from 8am-12pm. Please feel free to contact me via telephone or come in for a visit, if you have any questions or concerns about the course. Part of your Personal Journal Entry this week is to do a grade check. Please run a grade report or look in your grade book and check all the scores you have received in the course. I want to make sure everyone gets the correct grade in the course and that there are no surprises. So please add up your points in the course. Take a look at what score you are likely going to get and ask me any questions if you think an assignment has been scored incorrectly or unfairly. I am very open to talking to you about your scores in the course, so please don’t hesitate to contact me either tomorrow during office hours or via your Personal Journal Entry. I will have office hours next week as well, on Tuesday morning from 8-9am, and those will be my last office hours of the semester. Thank you again for all of your hard work this semester and for you wonderful discussions this week. I look forward to participating in the rest of your discussions which are open until Wednesday night at 10pm. Thanks everyone and have a nice week!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are all enjoying Week #11. I have certainly enjoyed your presentations on your Mini Case Study of an International Adult Education Provider. Thank you for choosing such interesting providers, I think we have all been learning a lot from these presentations. Of course the follow up discussions is currently under way and it will go until 10pm tonight. Next week, we do not have a discussion, so after our discussion ends tonight we will not be discussing together until Week #13. Next week we are off of the discussion board in observance of Veteran’s days. Even though we don’t have a discussion next week, we of course still have course reading to do that are due this Sunday, and you have readings due the following Sunday, as well. You also have a personal journal due this week and next week. While you are off from the discussion board next week, I highly recommend that you begin or continue to work on your next two paper assignments. You do have your Micro Teaching Lesson Plan due, as well as an article critique due, before the end of the semester. The guidelines for the micro teaching lesson plan are available in the assignment guidelines folder and I will have the guidelines for the article critique posted by this Friday. As always please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns about the assignments. Even though we will not have a formal discussion next week the “Ask the Instructor Discussion Board” will be open and I will have my normal office hours. As a reminder, the micro teaching lesson plan is due November 23rd, and your article critique is due CEP week on Monday, December 9th. I’ve really enjoyed all the hard work that you are doing in this course- please keep it up! As a reminder, registration opens tomorrow for the spring semester. Please make sure you contact your adviser to touch base and to get your pin number to register for the spring. I will hopefully work with you all again sometime in the future, and I hope you all enjoy the rest of the semester and have a great spring semester as well. With that I am going to sign off and say have a wonderful weekend and take care!

This teaching is a foundational truth that is essential for understanding how much God loves you and believing what He says about you in His Word. Each person is made up of three different parts: spirit, soul, and body. Learn how these three parts relate to God and to each other. At salvation your spirit is totally changed, but your soul and body is not yet redeemed. This series will teach you how to release the life that is already in your spirit, into your physical body and emotions. http://www.awmi.net/extra/audio/1027

Welcome to Module 6 of Foundations. We will mainly work on creating the components for Module 2 of our development course. We will also finish getting our classes ready for the teaching simulations which start next week. So to do this we will post an announcement in our development class and we will also complete the grade book assignment. Please check your email for the teaching simulation instructions. I hope you all have a great week and please let me know if you have any questions.

Welcome to Kelli Green's first podcast. I created this podcast as a class assignment for a graduate class titled Teaching in a Digital World. Look for more podcasts from me in the fall.
