After three weeks of working pretty much flat out, I’ve completed work on the first half of my EN245 course at WLU for the fall, which is going to be a flipped classroom. My advice for adjuncts: don’t flip if you can help it. There’s way too much prep involved.
I taught myself how to use PowerDirector 13, how to get a good quality audio recording, where I could find decent images, and all this while creating scripts and trying to read the texts. My head is a little spinny right now, I admit.
Nevertheless, if you are interested, you can take a look at the part of my course that will be hosted on YouTube. It’s a little fragmented because I’ve cut the course in 3 and have text-only, audio/audio and text, and video/video and text parts. Some of the scripting I could have done better with more time, I admit it.
I misspeak in places and my accents are just… well, the less said about them, the better. The second half of the course should be (I hope) better.
Below are just a few videos that I’ve attached because why the hell not?
