About me


I have learned the kind of student information that is allowable for parents to receive whether or not they are paying for tuition.  Very interesting!

Reply to Kathleen Kuznar's post: I have found the ssme.  In the Dental Hygiene field, it is critical that students have hands-on training. Along with that it is also critical that they learn to problem solve as each patient is uniquely different.  Most of the information can be learned through technology and online learning but it is key to have simulation for safe practice.

It will be a challenge to move into discussion groups when in an online course where attendanxe is not mandatory.

I do find using rubrics with some projects advantageous, but am glad we don't grade entirely by rubrics.  I find them very limiting.  We use a rubric sent by a curriculum expert and am ususally wishing I could make my own.


I have taught at Concorde for 11 years.  This is the first time I have been made aware of so many students with some type of disability in one Cohort.  This course came at the perfect time because I was not thinking of some of their issues as disabilities.  This has really opened my eyes.

I was surprised by the number of students with disabilities.  I was truly short-sighted when thinking about the word 'disabilities' as well.  I have been enlightened to 'paint with a broader brush' when teaching any classes.

I found this course to be a great source of information for everyone.  I tend to be so involved in the academic side of the student's education that I sometimes don't think about the student's experience in our school in its entirety.  I'm g;ad to be refreshed on these topics.

This course reminds me there is more to the adult learning process than simply memorizing facts. If they can't see how all the facts come together to formulate a plan for their patients then we are not giving them the tools they need to be successful.


I learned to look at my course assessments as a three-legged stool: before , during and after.  It is very helpful to view it this way because it gives me structure so I can remember to include each part of my course equally.  I have already come across so many issues that are discussed in this course as I teach synchronously and asynchronously within the same course.  Our faculty realized early on that we needed ways to curb possible cheating online and this course has good suggestions some of which we already implemented before.

We have also already had the… >>>
