Last week a group of us visited Colleen Glover‘s Science and Math classroom at the Nova Career Centre of the New Frontiers School Board. We watched, listened, took pictures, and recorded some video footage. When the class was over, Avi Spector and Sonya Fiocco interviewed Colleen about what we had just seen in her classroom.
Once the formal interview was over, we settled into a conversation about a variety of topics. This podcast is an excerpt of that conversation and it focuses on the student/teacher relationship in Adult Education. Towards the end of the conversation, Colleen talks about how she uses Remind as a tool to keep in touch with her learners on a daily basis.
At times you may hear some banging – it is a sign of a passionate conversation and hitting the table for emphasis!
ETP = Étudiants à temps plein (or full time students). If students are often absent, they can no longer be considered full-time and that can affect funding.
I have been teaching and consulting - from primary school through adult education - since 1996. Currently an education consultant with la Commission scolaire de la Seigneurie-des-Mille-Îles in Montreal, Quebec, I believe that sharing our stories is the key to getting better together.
