After my last rant, I realized that not all graduate courses for educators are a joke. I am currently enrolled in the Masters program at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. It might be new, but it has big goals. The academic rigor of the courses is what I would expect for a graduate level course.
I believe the crane in this picture of the Harrisburg skyline is from when they were building Harrisburg University.
The program of Learning Technologies is perfect for me. Most of the professors understand that we are working professionals – so the work load is not completely overwhelming. I am not just learning things I can apply in my classroom, but I am learning about the research behind the technology.
Parents did not grow up in classroom’s using web 2.0 technology, so it is logical they have questions. Now I have the answers.
