Dr. Borel started the web conference on time at 8:00 pm and once again had everything organized so well that it was really easy to understand. There was discussion on tk20 assignments and some really helpful tips from some participants in reference to tk20 assignments. The discussion on the campus-supervised summary report was very helpful, as it cleared up some of the confusion on columns 1 and 2. The information given to us on the tk20 course binder requirements also cleared up some confusion, as it gave us the assignments that we used these documents on. As Dr. Borel walked through the Action Research Project Report she noticed that there were some mistakes in the sample report on the google site. This has been a little confusing in trying to look at the sample as it didn't look like what we are being asked to do. Now it is clarified that there are some problems with the sample. Dr. Borel clarified that we are to only capitalize the first word of our definitions, yet the sample has all words capitalized. So I will be going by what Dr. Borel said in the web conference. There were a few questions asked from the participants and Dr. Borel answered them succinctly. Overall, the information was very helpful. Another great web conference!

The web conference started with a survey on the superbowl picks for this upcoming weekend. I really thought this was neat because it reiterates how Dr. Borel likes to build relationships. Go Denver!
This weeks web conference was once again very informative. Dr. Borel really keeps us up to date with what is due and when. We went over the assignment for week 3 and did 10 of the questions form one of the sections. Going over the questions was helpful and it did teach us that we really need to invest in the APA manual. Dr. Borel mostly discussed the action research plan as well as the template. She went over APA format as well as showed us some examples. We talked about posting to TK20 and the seven documents that are included. We also talked about campus supervised logs and that we need to include reflections. We discussed the course embedded logs on courses we have already completed and that there is also a form for this. She said that we need to reflect on these with at least two to three sentences, however most people are giving paragraphs which is just fine. All of the forms are located in the resource section as well as the Google Doc for this class https://sites.google.com/site/edld5397borel/
Once again it was a very good web conference.
