I enjoyed the first day. I like that the group was asked to write on the whiteboard what they would like from the introduction. I felt that everyone could see that we are all in the same boat because all the replies fitted into 3 main areas. I also like the ice-breaker idea of a tongue twister. I have never been asked to create one before and it practically fell of my tongue. I hope you all like it.
As for preparing to learn online. I guess like any learning you hope the course will be well planned and designed in a way that will keep everyone interested. So far so good! As a teacher for many years and a student I don't have a fear of attending courses per se, I tend to think about how the course will be structured and the variety of techniques that will be used. These are key areas that I find help student engagement and thus helps them to complete the course. To apply this to an online course should be very interesting. I have no previous experience of teaching an online course only as a student. I will create online courses in my current role and hope to get lots of new ideas from this course.
