The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

Just to get an idea of how cross-curricular online teaching can be, please post a message stating where you teach, age/grade levels, what subject matters, and what kind of online teaching you do (fully online, blended, web-enhanced, etc.).

I am an adjunct instructor for three different institutions of higher education spread throughout the country. I consider myself a "freelance online educator". I work full time online in this capacity and teach professional development courses for educators as well as developmental composition to pre-college community college students. I am also available as a consultant in instructional design and course development, plus I write. My days are full ;-)
I am a fully online adjunct for several universities teaching graduate level courses mostly to teachers. I am also an author. My latest book was co-authored with Lisa Chamberlin and is entitled Making the Move to eLearning: Putting Your Course Online.
I am currently the web developer and web services manager at a private university. I am also an (aging) Ed.D. student. My concentrations are instructional technology for distance education and instructional design. My thesis concept is to identify patterns for shifting 'Introduction to..." courses to a blended model. I am currently working on an online course for the university that will assist students and faculty in determining/evaluating factors that make a student a good (or poor) candidate for online courses.

I serve as an adjunct instructor in the Media Studies department where I co-teach the Electronic Practicum to junior and senior level undergraduate students...(at times, I am not sure who is doing the teaching *grin*).

For fun, I build ceramic musical instruments and write historical can take a peek here if you wish.

My days are full and insanely energizing :)
I teach faculty for a post-secondary institute in Saskatchewan, Canada. I teach a course in the Summer which is faculty's first step and then they move to a blended course. I guess my interest is faculty development.
I'm self-employed currently (in Argentina) and mostly doing f2f web-enhanced teaching with children and adults.

I've recently applied to start teaching fully online as well and while I'm on the waiting list I'm trying to design the curricula for some courses I think might be popular with online learners. I'll most probably be working with adults -although I'd have no objections to design programmes for younger learners or teens.

I'm also exploring Second Life as a teaching and learning environment, both to be used occasionally and on a more full time basis.

I help build the Academic Skills Moodle for the THINK Education Group by day, and develop alternate learning tools by night.
I've got some of my projects and prototypes here
I have a blog where I write about the stuff I do, there's a TEDx talk where I talk about it, and I'm currently developing content and structure for an online learning website.
Tuesday nights I do a radio show on Brazilian music, but that's another story. :)

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
