Teaching online is something I’ve wanted to do for a while – for a lot of reasons. For one, it would give me the opportunity to teach more classes. I’d never have to leave the house – and that’s a major benefit. I really don’t like most people, so not having to deal with them face to face would be a bonus. And the bottom line is that I love to learn new stuff, I love to be the student, and I love being online – so teaching online is the natural progression.
I got accepted into a course that’s teaching me how to teach online. Pretty scary – it’s been a long time since I was a student. I don’t do well at many things, but I excel at being a student. First part of the course completed with flying colors, on to the next.
It’s a ton of work. It’s self directed and I am not good with time management. Or with organization. Yup, there’s a file on this zip drive that has my course development plan – but what the hell did I name it? Three days into course building, creating modules and going “what the hell do I put there?” I found it! Yes! Score one for me!
Oh, crap, now I have to actually do the work.
I’ve been very scattered tonight. A bad walk with Max, and I’m just out of sorts. Tomorrow will be better. It has to be.
