Hello Everyone,

I am a little late posting this week but I am here now. This fall I am teaching for the honors college as well as teaching online and homeschooling 2 children.

I enjoyed reading many of your comments and will post a direct response later.

I am still thinking about my role as an online educator. I feel like this is still

a very unchartered territory and that being open to a variety of new modalities

and teaching methods is the only way to navigate this educational

model. That being said, one of the aspects that I truly like about online learning is the variety of students that enroll in the class. I like that there are freshwomen, full-time working folks and parents. This adds to the perspectives and diversity of experience (and location)

to the course.

(I am not sure why the post formatted this way)!?

  1. Dana Reason,
    I love the diversity of the online classroom as well. Thank you for bringing up this point, it is a very important one.

    Because my students have a wealth of experience, I learn from them a great deal.

  2. Dana, I’m not sure why your post has some extra spaces.

    I agree, though, that one of the more enjoyable aspects of teaching online is a greater diversity of students. The online format also seems to give students more space for sharing with each other, independent of their communications with me.

    I’d categorize this post under LOC2 The Online Classroom!
