Welcome to my OLTD Learning Journey Website Bienvenue dans mon cheminement en ligne à travers OLTD
The online learning and teaching graduate diploma, OLTD, at Vancouver Island University seemed to be the best fit for this new journey. After developing online courses and teaching online for the past 6 years, I decided that is was time to deepen my knowledge on what makes a good online course, on how to become a better online educator and on what is available out there to enhance what I already have created. As an online learner, I am looking forward to sharing with others evidence of my learning and my reflection on it, and my hope is that you will come to understand how online learning is a new avenue that broadens the horizons of education.
As a visual metaphor for this new learning journey through OLTD, I have chosen water. Water represents life, since without water the journey of life would not exist. In the summer, I love to swim in lakes and do it as often as I can, even if the water is cold. I leave the shore to go on a journey to explore my abilities and endurance, and to feel refreshed and free. This new learning journey is providing me a similar experience of exploration and is allowing me to refresh what I have created so far. I hope that you will follow me through my journey.
