Day 1 At ICTCM

March 11, 2010 at 4:40 pm Leave a comment

Today was a pretty good day. I presided over a 6-hour “Beyond the Basics” MyMathLab session. I’m pretty impressed with the dedicated instructors who devoted their entire day to this. We covered managing assignments, advanced gradebook items, the MML Announcement Manager, Study Plan, …

It was just refreshing to be around so many people that cared.

The main gem I picked up today was from an instructor who encourages students to verbally share their success stories with his class. If a student improves their performance, they are encouraged to share their secrets. Not only is this a great affirmation for the student, it provides the road map to other students in the class.

Sessions start tomorrow, a Camtasia workshop is one of the many sessions I’ll be attending.
