I’m exctied to have completed the online orientation. It’s useful to have had an introduction to the structure of the school before I walk in the door, hopefully this will make it easier when my inevitable questions and concerns come up. The course gave a good overview of the school and departments in a reasonable amount of time.
I am excited to learn more about the 7Cs. As a framework for teaching it resonated with me as a way to encapsulate all the many different things that we need to be successful teachers. When seeing the overview I immediately recognized myself as having strengths in areas, weaknesses in others. I imediately saw “Clarify” as an area that I have struggled with since moving to international education and look forward to growing there.
