"I have completed ED106 and I believe this lesson highlights how important it is for us to understand our learners. The lesson express that a small percentage of our students have disabilities and how important it is for us to target those students for success as well. This exercise has made me more aware and helped me to identify those student with learning disabilities so I can better prepare them in their careers. GREAT LESSON!!!!"
"Of all of the lessons I have taken thus far, I find ED106 to be intriguing. Understanding group dynamics and their outcomes have brought me back to a time and place where getting the students attention is rewarding. Watching their interactions with each other and the beam in their eyes in seeing their accomplishments and success has revitalized my desire to also be successful in helping them meet their goals. I am especially interested in the videotaping of instructors and having it play back for self-assessment. As lead instructor, I plan to intrude this concept and have a workshop for us to review and see how we can improve on our teaching skills. I believe if we see ourselves the way our students sees us will be helpful in making us better communicators in our field of expertise."
