My real “why”

2 min read

The resource I'm developing alongside my journey through connectedcourses.net is an introduction to the various technologies that are available to instructors on our campus, both within and external to the institutional online learning environment. (We use Moodle).

My real “why” is to empower instructors and support students as they go along their journeys. To guide them to the various options available in a just-in-time manner. To facilitate the communication and the expression of ideas through a variety of mediums. Jump in at any point, and dive only as deep as you may have want or need.

I'm astounded by the quality of ideas and material that are pouring out of . It's melting my mind a bit. And with current workloads... it’s going to be a struggle to keep up.

But here I am. We press on. To teach is to learn, to learn is to grow, and to grow gives meaning to life.*

*Somebody may have said that, I don't know. A quick DuckDuckGo search didn't produce an exact match, but lead me to this page, which has some really great quotes on teaching.

Of course, you should also check out for some fantastic contributions from the connected courses community and beyond.
