Highlighting my Teaching Skills - Curriculum Creator and Adjunct of Online Courses available for teaching assignments
As an adjunct since 2003, I have been so lucky to teach and touch the lives of so many students - both online and in person.
Just yesterday, I gave the midterm review for my upcoming exam (Monday morning, students who are reading) and I was happy some of the students were able to answer the questions (emphasis on some) but I do know they will all study and do as well as they can on the midterm (right, class?).
As someone who has taught in higher education for the past 13 years, I have learned a lot in my classroom. Yes, that is right - I have learned a lot. I have taught a lot, for sure, but the bulk of the experience of teaching is that by teaching is that I learn, too.
One of my more recent skills as an educator is in the realm of online learning and teaching. I am now able to say I am "expert" level at creating and launching curriculum as well as designing the online learning environment. I created a page on my website to highlight these skills because I do believe they go hand in hand with the business model I am packaging as being someone who is the go to person in my area (and beyond with online learning) to create and share lessons and learning modules across various subjects.
My expertise is in both undergrad and graduate business courses. Over the past 13 years, I have taught anything from macro and micro economics to entrepreneurship. I wanted to highlight this diversity and skill set on my website - check out the page here and let me know your thoughts: Online Course Curriculum Development and Execution
Some questions - Am I calling it the right thing? How do I position myself to the colleges and universities that offer online courses in the best way so that I can use my skill set to further build out my business and my experience in using different tools and techniques to bring online content alive?
As I use this blog to share my focus as an entrepreneur, I did post not too long ago about the possibility of branching out to provide a turnkey operation on blogging for small businesses (see more here Small Business Blogging Service)- this is still an option particularly as I have some upcoming speaking engagements discussing my lessons and how to start blogging for a small business.
For now, though, this is the best way for my to execute on diversifying my skill set and making my business more profitable. I would love to be able to teach more classes online (and in person) while also publishing and doing speaking engagements and more with the local high schools on college and career readiness. I have a lot more going on and there will be more to share, too here on my blog, via Instagram and Twitter. If you are not following me already, please do join me on my journey to build out my business using my teaching skills and more!
