A warm welcome from the Central Okanagan. Great beaches, champagne powder for all you skiers and boarders, of course some of the best wines in the world are from this region. My name is Mark Stathers and I have been a welding instructor at Okanagan College for the past 9 years. Previous to this chapter in my life I worked as a Boilermaker in the heavy construction industry.
During the course of my career as an instructor, I have been presented with a number of opportunities to expand my skills as an adult educator. I believe the Provincial Instructors Diploma Program will provide a solid knowlage base that will increase my effectiveness as an educator. This blog is in a constant state of flux due to the ongoing requirements of Vancouver Community College’s Provincial Instructors Diploma Program course 3100 Foundations of Adult Education.
I would like to eventually expand this blog to include all the activities required by the Provincial Instructors Diploma Program. This will hopefully provide an ongoing record of the transformation of my knowlage and skill gains throughout the progression of the program.
