For my sins in a past life, I am condemned to spend 8 hours a day for the next two weeks in a workshop on instructional technology. While not as hellish as my driving class, I am suffering with conviction. This photo shows the general level of excitement in our group.
The liveliest moment occurred when one participant reached a breaking point and began anxiously asking,
"But how do I KNOW whether my course is learner-centered or instructor-centered?"
"But how do I KNOW??? How??"
It was judged to be time for a break and as you can see, we at least know how to eat in these technology Gulags.
We actually were given homework, which everyone proceeded to complete surreptitiously while the presenters were still talking about grade rubrics and assessment. I think I did my homework wrong. I am praying I don't get kept after class tomorrow because it just might put me over the edge.
It was a horseless day, which just seems wrong.
