Review of HS teachers workshop

The workshop with the high school teachers went well yesterday. I should have created a detailed handout but I think showing them and having them utilize various features within WordPress was a great start. They loved the student presentations. Next time I would like to start with a student presentation and have the workshop be two half days with a two-week break in between. This will give the participants time to play with the software, read up about writing reflections, review the course syllabus, and create a working portfolio at their own pace. Overall the questions were great and the audience was really engaged. My new colleague, Bren Price did an excellent job with the library overview section and the two students, James McQueen and Theresa Hogan gave excellent presentations. I thank Ginny Amato of Career Pathways for organizing the event. I look forward to teaching the refresher course to the high school teachers soon.
