I am have to admit when I sit down to write these blogs I always wonder if I write enough. I am not a person to write a lot, but rather like to say what I want in shorter paragraphs. So I do apologize if my blogs seem short at times. I joined a group of wonderful fellow students who had already discussed a topic for our project. I was really interested as I knew relatively little about the project idea. I have to be honest- I had to research to really understand the meaning, and what my role would be. My background is being a nurse, so this is relatively new concepts for me. We are looking at genius hour. I honestly believe this is an amazing concept. The people I am working with mostly teach within our school districts, so as a nurse and a instructor of a nursing program I had to think how this would apply for me personally. When I was a manager with the health region I believe this concept would have been valuable asset, to gather ideas for improvement, and increase motivation etc. Now that I teach a nursing program, I believe the genius hour could have the potential to bring forth amazing contributions to our profession. The learning module I will be looking at is how to develop questions that drive this project. I keep wondering what it would have been like for me when I was younger to be able to actually learn about something that interested and inspired me. When I read Melinda`s post I have to say I loved her opening dialogue with Eminem`s song. Welcome back Melinda !! I know I am learning a lot even though this is my second class with Alec C . I look forward to learning with you . I think developing a course with medical terminology would be exciting, with a lot to learn.
