MassCUE2011 Presentation, Foxborough, Massachusetts

 

 

I would like to extend a big thank you for all who attended our presentation at MassCUE2011. Meg and I hope you came away with some tips you are now able to implement in your classroom or are at least giving some serious thought to what self-directed learning skills are all about and how important they can be in your life.

We had a fabulously, posh space for our presentation. Gillette Stadium is home to the Patriots [who happened to be on another field practicing-no photos allowed]. The view out onto the field was spectacular. This would put a whole new light into watching a live game.

 

Be sure to join us for our free webinars where we will continue the conversation surrounding self-directed learning skills and how you can hone them and share them with your students, fellow colleagues and administrators.

I sat down with Stormwater USA and consulted with them on some of their new training materials they are in the process of re-designing.  Stormwater provides industry professionals with an accessible stormwater training program to meet the growing demands for National Pollution Discharge Elimination System [NPDES] training.  Stormwater has created a series of web-based NPDES training courses to ensure that every construction professional has access to this vital training.

The Collaborative for Educational Services: Coaching eLearners 6-12 Summer 2011

Coaching eLearners Summer 2011sm

Collaboratively developed and co-facilitate the Coaching eLearners 6-12 online course which trains educators to coach online learners in developing strong learning skills necessary to be successful self-directed learners.  One coach reported, “I learned more than I had ever imagined.  The course provided me with a wealth of knowledge about self-directed, open-minded thinking, goals and learning contracts, and so much more about helping students use meta-cognition and being taking responsibility for their own learning. I was never bored!
