On July 1st, 2013 my position officially changed from Curriculum and Technology Specialist (a grant position with duties split between faculty tech support and civics activities)to eLearning Director at Renton Technical College - the first person to fill this new position. As before, my duties are many. In order to successfully carry them out, I will hone these skills:
1) Help lead our campus-wide transition to Canvas. This will entail setting up accounts and showing people how to use Canvas, and mentor calmness in the chaos of absolute new. (It means I have to keep a reassuring presence while I frantically try to figure out what went wrong.) I have thus made my eLearning motto: Keep Calm and eLearn On.
2) Help us transition to Hybrid Courses....and oh, what is hybrid anyway?
