So I’ve started a new position as eLearning Director at Bellingham Technical College.
The tasks I have are pretty challenging so far and here’s where I’ll be documenting the processes I go through. Most issues are related and interwoven it seems and I’ll be collaborating with a whole bunch of amazing people to get them off the ground.
So here’s what I’ll be tackling.
- The SBCTC decided to switch over to the Canvas and our instance goes live in a few weeks with classes starting in Summer Quarter 2013. There’s a lot to do surrounding this project, and my brain is overloaded
- Library / Technology integration is a thing. At BTC, the eLearning department has been traditionally separated over the years but now we share a space in the new Campus Center building, so managing student support, and collaborating on technology related projects is something we’ll be working on.
- Promotion of a learning design process with faculty. I’m starting and Learning Design Roundtable, which meets every 2 weeks. This group will be discussing learning design and how they can use the theories, tools, ideas and practices of this concept to enhance their instruction.
I think that’s it for now. Check back for more detailed posts on the above topics and other things I run into.
