Looking through the lessons learned I must say that these couple has gone through a lot but chose to be happy and positive in the end. i definitely can relate. Hope to find my own illustrator soon as well.
Advance Happy Hearts Day. 🙂
Two of the hot topics in education in the last few years have been Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC’s) and the flipped classroom. I’ve been experimenting with both of them.
What I’ve learned (besides being able to use the word “pedagogy” in a sentence) is

Here’s the story of what we tried and what we learned.

I’ve learnt a great deal during my stints as Emcee over the last couple of months… and here are some insights for anyone who wishes to be an effective emcee or are just starting out emceeing themselves.
Role of the Emcee
As the Emcee, (or Masters of Ceremonies), you are the bridge between the audience and the “Stars”. These are usually the contest participants (if you’re hosting a contest), or the speaker/trainers (if you’re hosting a seminar, workshop or lecture).
