Well, now I'm back in school taking the Sage Hill MADE course. This course is designed for faculty/staff to learn all about the in's and out's of Canvas as well as to learn some tools that will make us better in our jobs as educators. I know I'm not your traditional educator. I don't go by Miss, or Ms. Beaudoin, I don't have a classroom, I don't give grades (or those lengthy, yet very important comments) and I'm lucky enough to wear athletic attire 90% of the time. Although, I don't meet these criteria, I know that I educate students every day in that small closet styled room known as the Athletic Training Room at the end of the long hallway leading into the studio building. I educate student athletes on human muscle anatomy, the physics, and biochemistry of the human body, the chemistry behind why we heat at times and ice others, the physical medicine of rehabilitation, as well as sports nutrition and proper hydration.
The topics previously listed above are not traditional classes at Sage Hill, but maybe some day they will be. Until then, I'm taking this MADE course to help understand what my Advisees see and deal with on a daily basis when it comes to submitting assignments and just checking in on-line. As Mr. Irwin let me know I received a couple of zero scores already for incomplete assignments (this being one of them)....my level of empathy for our students increased dramatically! Here I am....already with a blog created and in use and because I don't check into Canvas often I forgot about submitting the assignments! Hopefully I'm back on track and maybe he'll give me some partial points ;).
