Insider Insight: Community College FAQ: The Application

Insider Insight: Community College FAQ: The Application | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Rob Jenkins: “The job ad only calls for a CV and a cover letter. Should I include more?... When I speak to graduate students about applying to community colleges, the question I’m invariably asked is, “What do I send in with my application?” Sure, the job ad only asks for a CV and a cover letter but, applicants wonder, “Shouldn’t I also include a teaching statement? A sample course syllabus? Maybe a copy of a published or in-progress manuscript?”

A Memo to My Students Re: College and the Real World

A Memo to My Students Re: College and the Real World | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
What happens in college and what you’ll be doing in your career aren’t the same, but they aren’t as different as many of you seem to think.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

I work in the real world with graduate students who are learning how to teach online. Many are already accomplished educators seeking to extend their skills to connect with a fast changing 'real world'. 

 

That said, our Graduate Certificate classes emphasize hands on projects that apply to their jobs right now.  That's the key; what you learn in the online class you put to work in your daily routine. 

 

Every time a student initiates a discussion they are practicing their instructor facilitation skills. Every group project delivers essential experiences needed to lead others through the terrain of technology based collaboration.

 

Since I teach EDUC 764 E-Learning Practicum, I push my students to change their point of view and think like online teachers. We make that transition by having them teach online in one of or graduate classes.  This is real experience, in the real world --- done virtually!

WGU Student Mentors serve a critical advising and support role for student success. Student mentors do not teach courses, rather, they are their students' primary source of information about academic program operation, and about the policies and procedures of the university. Student mentors counsel their assigned students in understanding expectations and overcoming obstacles to ensure success. The student mentor is responsible for providing highly engaged, student centered support to a caseload of undergraduate or graduate students. Student mentoring requires significant contact via phone but also includes email, web camera interaction, and the potential for instant messaging and alternate forms of connection.
