Never had an idea how distance learning works until I got into it. I was wondering how it will work if students can take a peek on the answer in the net and you will get the right answer and will certainly pass…but I experienced more than that. Having the resources just a click away, scheduled tasks and managing my own time wasn’t easy. It was a commitment. I can say teacher has a big impact on delivering the content and how each of them ponder students to learn. And I would like to give credits to teacher Malou who have done a great job leaving me with a HAPPY HEART AND A HAPPY MIND!
I am working as senior Physical Therapist and I have this tasks of supervising intern students and assessing them at the end of their so-called rotation on an area. I was moved by knowing the principles and the methods of how to assess my students and how could I know how much they are learning from me. I didn’t know that until I learned from my 10-week journey with EDS 113. Understanding alignment of objectives to assessment so we could have an effective outcomes; giving meaningful feedbacks in timely manner and appropriate words; different mindsets to understand the behavior of our students; reflective teaching where I can further improve myself; high stakes examination to always be prepared, table of specification and more of it to mention that I could use in my current position and will surely change my way of teaching and assessment. I know I still have a long way to walk on to have this dream of becoming a professional teacher but I am so pleased to bring along my experience and all of what I have learned from my peers and everything this semester.
