Today I spent most of the day preparing for online sessions I am co-teaching with Kim Duckett. We did one session today, and will do another one tomorrow. One of the great things about teaching online through Elluminate is that even the instructors can be in different places. Kim was at home, and I was at NCSU for the session, but we were both able to moderate and conduct the session. Today we did a session for Family Life and Youth Development, and tomorrow we are doing a session for an Adult and Higher Education class. Not only are these my first experiences teaching online, but they were the first classes I’ve taught to graduate students. Teaching the content can be challenging enough, but throwing in the application for teaching online adds a whole new dimension. But now I have experience teaching basic and advanced research skills, instructing both undergraduates and graduates, and teaching in both physical and virtual classrooms!
