Hello EFOT Learners!

Welcome to the world of blogging. We will use Scholarblogs periodically throughout our course to reflect and synthesize theory and practice of online teaching and learning. This course is focused on your growth as an online learner, even though you’ll be eventually in the instructor role, if you aren’t already. I’ll do my very best to model this process for you, as I’ve been facilitating in the online environment for nine years. My biggest challenge will be containing my passion and not showing you too much at one time.  Ultimately, it is my goal to introduce you to the various platforms and technologies that will support your instructional goals.  You should know what is available to you and your learners.

I feel like I am quite aware of the stellar individuals that we have in this cohort and I am open to the opportunities to learn from you, and your long-standing experiences as “guides on the side” and “sages on the stage” – I am thankful that you are willing to go on this wild ride of learning with me.  

Until soon,

    EFOT may be the best Emory acronym ever!

    Hi, I have logged in– Just so you know, per your second instruction. The first instruction about SB sent a week ago was a little ambiguous about how to let you know, but I get it now.

  3. I have already learned so much from week one readings. I know that I will be a better educator, facilitator and guide. Keeping the triad uppermost in my head will be so critical as I move forward. Thanks too to all the great voice threads! It is a stellar class of educators, professionals and designers and I’m thrilled to be a part.

    Wanted to let you know I am here. Enjoyed the first week. Sorry I have travel issues affecting my participation in the class for these first two weeks. Hanging on. Will be better beginning week three.
