Adult and Continuing Education
I will be sharing a few examples of assignments and exercises that I have done or have students do in the courses I teach at Marian. They allow students to get to know myself, so they don't think of me as just an authority on the other side of the computer, and as a way for me to get to know them through their work. I have found this give and take helps students to feel more comfortable with me as an instructor, and with completing my assignments and exercises. This also has given them a space to openly discuss topics and feelings and past experiences behind the computer screen. In doing this, it lets the student relate the assignment to their real life, and having them use the concepts they've learned through the textbook or reading articles.
