Welcome to my ePortfolio for the University of Wisconsin-Stout Certificate of Advanced Study in eLearning and Online Teaching. In this portfolio you will find my work from the four required courses and the Practicum for the program. Each course is designed to build skills and knowledge to be a more effective instructor and designer of eLearning experiences. This program has been invaluable to me as I worked to hone my skills as an online educator. Though no stranger to the field, I gained valuable insight and understanding into the world of online learning, which helped to make me a better online educator.
I cannot properly express my gratitude to the instructors in this program, who helped to guide me on my journey of reflection to improve my practice. In particular I would like to thank Sara Turansky, Jim Erbe, Dr. Susan Manning, Dennis O'Connor, but most importantly, Dr. Kay Lehmann, for not only teaching me how to build community in my online courses, but also for being my mentor in the Practicum Experience, and my inspiration to follow my dream.
