Grad School

I am currently in a class from hell. I am enrolled in an online course for my M.Ed. program, and it is just awful. The course is technology and learning. There is mass confusion, not much in terms of content and nobody has a clue on what the professor wants in terms of assignments. For example, we thought for the first assignment, he wanted something like a personal response type paper (“Using your personal experience”)- but really he wanted a research-style paper with nothing really about yourselves. We all received cruddy grades, with most of us receiving the worst mark we have been given in the M.Ed. program so far. For the past few nights I have been on conference call after conference call with my group to figure out what the professor wants for our 40% group assignment. Basically I think he wants us to design a course – which has been thinking, is this a technology and learning course or flipping teacher’s college? To further complicate things – not everyone in the program is a teacher. We have nurses, doctors, government workers, lots of different careers. So although this stuff seems simple to me, for others they do no know where to start.

 

BLAH!

 

Where is my emergency tiara?!?!?!

I did have a bit of fun answering some easy questions on our “brainstorming” sheet

    That is the worst when professors are super vague but want something really specific. Grad school ugh!

    Sounds like a nightmare! I seriously don’t know how you get everything done in a day! No wonder you are tired all the time.

    Sometimes I think about going back to school…

    Hope you get your project figured out!

      haha – I don’t have any fun? Yes, I think that is it! But in reality, I’m lucky that my job isn’t 9-5 and more like 9-4 🙂

        Oh that would make a difference working 9-4 but still! You must be super organized! I applaud you!

    I did my M.Ed. program online, too, and it was terribly frustrating when I didn’t know what the teacher WANTED from me!! I totally understand.
    P.S. You are funny 🙂

      This course is super frustrating. He also changes his mind all the time 🙁

    Maybe if your computer looked like an emergency tiara, all would be better.

    The fact that you are in grad school is amazing!! I attempted to try once and decided I did not have nearly enough time or energy for it!
