I am an approachable person. I have definite guidelines for how you will need to participate in this class, but all of the guidelines are designed to help you succeed. I've been teaching in a web based mode for over 20 years so I definitely have a lot of experience and knowledge about what works and what doesn’t in a web based environment.
Something I pride myself on is how conscientious I am. I return email in 24 hours, I grade everything within a week, I am available online and in my office for questions, and I LOVE what I do.
Online learning can be exciting, provide a sense of adventure, and it can take your level of frustration to a new height! Patience is a virtue and we will all need to practice this virtue throughout this semester. If you ever need help, please DO NOT hesitate to contact me. I have an open-door policy. Although online learning affords many advantages, it also can be a bit disconcerting because it can be more difficult to establish relationships online. We all need to work collaboratively, as a team, to make our class successful. If you have a collaborative spirit, it will make all of our lives easier. Believe me folks; there are projects in this class when you will need each other’s full cooperation.
I am looking forward to a rewarding semester,
