There’s an aphorism which begins, “Those who can, do. Those who can’t, teach. And those who can’t teach, teach teachers.”
That third one. That’s me. I’m the punchline. I’m about to teach teachers.
It’s an interesting project with UC Irvine Extension. As some of their instructors begin to teach online they face a challenge. How do they adapt to the differences a video camera brings?
We all think there’s a lot of low hanging fruit where small changes will bring large results.
I’m producing a video for the teachers. It’s a how-to of best practices and FAQ answers–a hand holder to help instill confidence in front of the camera. If it works they’ll become more effective reaching students via screens.
I think I can make a positive contribution.
