ID2ID Reflection 1

  As a returning ID2ID participant, I can’t express enough what an amazing professional development experience I’ve had in the program. Year one resulted in my first ever conference poster and presentation. It also led to invitations to co-author a post for EDUCAUSE’s Transforming Higher Education blog and to author a post for the @ONE Online Network...

I’ve been delaying finishing the final post for the @ONE Reflective Writing Club; I just don’t want it to end. The experience of reflecting, sharing, and engaging each week has been enjoyable and rewarding. Each day, my job as an instructional designer is different, and I’ve always been grateful for the variety. But, there is comfort in routine and...
