Skype call with partner

As part of course 3100,,Foundations of Education,we are assigned a learning partner ,and at week 4, we are encouraged to communicate with each other through Skype.My contact is Mark Selkirk,a Welding instructor from Prince George. We discussed the trends in our corresponding professions.(I am a Mechanic).We talked about the interesting fact that more women are entering the welding trade.I indicated that the car industry is developing advanced technologies in electric and alternative fuel vehicles.In the future,my perception of teaching and training has changed from the traditional classroom setting ,to the  integration of concepts such as online training ,flipped classrooms,and self directed learning.As an instructor,I will function more as a couch and adviser,interacting and collaborating with students,encouraging them to take more responsibility for their education.
