Please tell the group about your work in education
Faculty in a Social Work and Disability Progam at a small college in transition to University (Mount Royal College) and Faculty at City University of Seattle Master of Counselling Psychology Program. Both program prepare students for direct practice with clients.
Briefly, in what ways do you presently use the internet in an education context?
Courses are supported by course management system (BlackBoard). Classrooms are wireless so laptops are prevalent and incorporated into how lectures evolve, for example, in this week's Social Policy Class students where divided into Federal political parties and given a Welfare State issue. The assigned task was to present their parties platform for addressing the social need. Students accessed party web pages, political (critical) blogs, welfare state advocacy web pages and political foundation (lobby) web pages. Their 'political pitch' was open to challenge from the student group.
What do you wish to get out of participating in edonis over the next 3 years?
A better understanding of incorporating the internet into the classroom to be congruent with pedagogy.
