It’s been a few months since I’ve written here. A lot has happened – I have been teaching management of technology at BCIT’s School of Transportation, and I also taught Marketing at BCIT’s School of Business – a fun experience that I hope to continue. I am updating two textbooks and course materials for two Bachelors-level courses at BCIT. This fall, I have also started to teach at Kwantlen in the School of Business: I teach two courses in Marketing. All this, while continuing with the Provincial Instructors Diploma and a few consulting projects as well. Busy!
And it’s been good, and I have been learning lots. The PID is a great program. Through the many courses I have taken, I picked up useful tools and techniques and met wonderful people that I continue to see outside of class as well. It’s been a good decision to undertake this – my teaching techniques have vastly improved because of this program.
And so here I am, taking the final course in the program before I undertake the capstone project. I can almost see the blue skies and the wide open spaces. Wow, it all happened so quickly.
I will be writing here frequently in the next two months, a few posts every week, on a range of topics touching on the profession of teaching, ethical issues that come up in the classroom, feedback and professionalism, and on general topics of education. It’s good to be back, here.
