I am an instructor in the Medical Radiography Program at Camosun College and have enjoyed the transition from x-ray technologist to instructor but it has been a lot of work. I am thankful for support of family, peers, students and the help of the PIDP program to help make sense of what was happening in the classroom as I left my last job and was teaching a week later with no experience.
The PIDP classes have given me ideas of how to structure my courses and to help support the students with engagement activities, fair assessment, valuable feedback and all in all just to learn the language of instructing. I am taking PIDP 3260 Professional Practice to continue my growth as an individual and instructor and become one step closer to achieving my diploma.
