James’ (Jim) Reflections

I thought this was a good “Reflection” photo representative of looking back on where we’ve been!  For me, the week 3 readings shed light on an important aspect of course design, understanding the role culture plays.  I do, however, think the term “culture” is very broad, and it can certainly include the embedded culture we see in different professions as well.  

For me, this week really boiled down to a good strategy on researching learner characteristics as you develop your course.  If you do some solid research and design your course with the “culture” in mind, you can’t go wrong.

On a personal note, it’s been a tough week because all my kids are out of school for the summer and my wife, Julie, and I obviously want to spend time with them.  So I find myself posting and reading at all  hours!  School is back in session in a couple weeks, maybe some “normalcy” when come my way??
