Glad to be in the class to meet new people and staff! Excited to see and feel new technology and educational content throughout the year!! See you in Wisconsin~~

I am excited to collaborate with everyone as I heard many interesting goals for this class, some of which I had not thought of but am very interested in as well.

First day conversations raised an important question that I plan to carry with me throughout the next year: How can I maintain a commitment to informal education philosophy that I use within my course to an online environment?

I hope to gain some insights and responses to this question as I continue to talk with others and learn about education online tools.

Excited to get started

Having had little experience with online courses, I'm excited to go to the Madison conference and see what others have done with online courses. I have a lot of experience with different techniques and curricula that support student engagement and learning in a face-to-face environment, but have never thought much about how they might translate to an online environment.

Looking forward

Thanks for the day. I'm looking forward to using the information from the workshops to improve my courses. It sounds as though it will be as much fun as it will be informative.

Welcome the 2011 Transform Treks blog! Treks is an innovative, year-long cohort-based program designed to help CEHD instructors learn about instructional technologies. The Transform track is focused on creating a hybrid course. This program provides designated time for instructors to explore the ever-expanding array of learning technologies and tools available at the University of Minnesota as well as best practices for using them to enhance student learning and engagement. The purpose of this blog is to provide a space for Transform participants to share their reflections and insights throughout the program.
