Presenting online program at Marine Harvest International
I designed a module for a vocational college in the Netherlands. The module consisted of online content aligned to the European Credit system for Vocational Education and Training (ECVET) and practical application out in the field. The blended program was designed using Canvas and incorporated tools to provide more collaboration through social learning tools, such as Flipgrid.
This opportunity gave me a chance to implement the program, Exploring Diversity in Aquaculture (EDA) I started developing back in the US and to assess its effectiveness with a wider international audience.
To find out more about EDA please see our website which I created using Wordpress: www.exploringdiversityinaquaculture.org
In Summer 2017, I will be Course Instructor for BIO159 Introduction to Aquaculture online course offered through Manchester Community College, CT. In preparation, I am also developing the 8 week course modules using Blackboard.
