Developing Online Courses
The world of education is rapidly changing, and online courses are now part of the mainstream. A new paradigm of “any time, any where, any place, any pace” learning is transforming K-12 and higher education.
I’ve been blessed to be part of this paradigm shift, having developed several online courses in math and science. Working with the non-profit Michigan Virtual School, I created AP Physics, AP Biology, AP Calculus, Astronomy, Biology, and Precalculus courses. As an adjunct instructor at Calvin College and Grand Rapids Community College, I’ve also developed and taught college-level physics and astronomy courses online.
I’ve always seen teaching as a creative activity, but developing online courses provides a wonderful opportunity to explore a full range of creative interests: writing, movie-making, instructional design, and more.
