- Considering your previous experience with online learning, what are your instructional strengths & areas for growth?
Considering my previous experience with online learning, I think “Feedback” is most of my instructional strengths, and also “care”.
I always mark the students’ homework, assignments, and assessment papers timely and make the whole class feedback and individual guidance. I did a lot of individual feedback and make sure the students know how to improve. I encourage them to continue with confidence.
In the aspect of “care”, I have made great progress and improvement. I think that students’ emotions are the key factors for their learning. Therefore, I always try to listen and know about them outside the Chinese classroom and show my interest and patience to them.
*Areas for growth: Screencasts/Digital Learning
To learn more strategies from colleagues, PD, students to serve the coming Blended Learning.
- Using the 5Cs of online learning, what goals might you set for yourself in anticipation of future online instruction?
The 5Cs of online learning:
Captivate: How do I spark and maintain student interest in learning?
Care: How can I show concern for students’ emotional and academic well-being?
Collaborate: How can I work together positively and productive with my colleagues to ensure equity for students?
Clarify: How can I help students understand the content and resolve confusion?
eClassroom Management: How can I create an eLearning environment that is orderly and fosters respect among students?
I will set’ Collaborate’ as the goal for myself in anticipation of future online instruction.
Because of uncertain factors, the cooperation between students has become more challenging than before. I hope that both classroom teaching and off-site could cooperate in many ways.

Provide consistency in learning goals.
Ensure high-quality learning for all.
Share the workload.
Share out great Lesson ideas and resources.
Encourage students to collaborate and connect with each other.
