The process of completing the PID program has really opened my eyes to the possibilities for the education of my adult learners. I have already learned so much about creating learner-centred curriculums. I am hoping that this particular course will give me the tools I need to transform my knowledge of what could/should be done into actual self-directed learning activities.
I find myself in a position of knowing what I can do, but not necessarily fully understanding how to do it. Many of the topics in this program, such as: motivation, active learning, flipped classrooms, etc. should guide me in the right direction. I know that I will learn as much from the information, as I will from taking part in a self-directed program. The activities in this course include reflective journals, readings, creation of a video, discussion forums, etc. - many instructional strategies that I can use in my own classroom.
