Courses Written and Taught by Janine Lim

This page lists all the graduate level courses that I teach. I usually teach 8-10 semester credits annually.

Most of these courses are online. I love teaching online, for the thoughtful discussion and the semi-individualized pace of learning that affords a more in-depth learning. I have taught online in WebCT, Blackboard, Desire2Learn and Moodle. Currently the Berrien RESA courses are taught in Moodle and the AVLN courses are in Desire2Learn.

The courses I currently still teach regularly are at the top of the list.

To participate in any of these online courses, follow the links to register through the organization that offers the class.

   
Classes in Progress

As of summer 2010, I am writing two new courses:

  • Supporting Teachers' Use of Videoconferencing (for Berrien RESA)
  • Integrating Technology in Pathways Part 1 (for AVLN)
   

Ken Conn and Bennie Tschoerner, who met online in my Planning Interactive Curriculum Connections class invited me to join this collaboration in 2005. 123 VC: Jazzing Up Your Curriculum with Videoconferencing is now a grassroots collaboration between participants in several states and three countries to put on a week long workshop on K12 curriculum videoconferencing. I serve on the leadership team that helps shape and manage the growth of this collaboration. Read a history of "Jazz" here. This class is offered for credit through Grand Valley State University, Western Michigan University and Andrews University.

This class is face to face at my site, but connected to other workshop host locations in three countries via videoconferencing.

In 2005 I designed Kid2Kid Videoconference Connections on the request of a Planning Interactive Curriculum Connections participant, and piloted it November 2005-March 2006.

I am also currently rewriting it to include Skype as well as standards-based videoconferencing.

In 2004, I designed Planning Interactive Curriculum Connections and piloted it January 2004. Each time it is offered for credit offered through Grand Valley State University, Western Michigan University and Andrews University. I have offered this class many times, and even co-published research based on the course participants' discussion. Many regional and state videoconference leaders today started out learning about videoconferencing in this class. I continue to teach this class regularly for Berrien RESA. I am also currently rewriting it to include Skype as well as standards-based videoconferencing.

Technology in the Early Elementary Classroom
TEEC

In the summer of 2001 and through the school year, I team-designed Technology in the Early Elementary Classroom with Marilyn Western. I taught it for Ameritech Technology Academy spring 2002 and summer 2002. Credit offered through Western Michigan University and Central Michigan University. Marilyn and I traded off teaching and team-teaching the class for MACUL and CMU from its beginning in 2002 through the winter of 2006. Projects created by teachers in some of those sessions are still online here.

I adapted this class (with Marilyn's permission) and integrated faith into it for AVLN purposes in 2003. I have taught it several times for AVLN.

  • Spring 2003
  • Summer 2003
  • Winter 2004
  • Winter 2005
  • Summer 2005 (Mentored Gavin Record in teaching this course.)
  • Have provided tech support for Gavin teaching this class every year since.

I also teach this class for Berrien RESA annually in the winter.

  • Fall 2005
  • Winter 2007
  • Winter 2008
  • Winter 2009
  • Winter 2010

In the fall of 2005, I supported the social studies and gifted and talented consultant at Berrien County ISD in creating and teaching an online course on Teaching Academic Vocabulary, based on Marzano's research and work. This class is not currently offered.

Desire 2 Learn Mini-CoursesD2L

In the summer of 2005, I repurposed the AVLN online teaching courses into several mini one-two week seminars. The main purpose was to teach faculty in Adventist colleges and universities about the new Desire2Learn online course management system; built in with instructional strategies for using the D2L tools being taught. The courses were not taught for graduate credit and were only offered that summer. The courses were offered in two tracks:

Web Enhancing 101

  • Making Your Life Easier with a Course Management System
  • Class Discussions Online
  • Lighten Your Course Material Through a Course Management System
  • Assessment Online in Desire2Learn

Advanced Desire2Learn

  • Converting to D2L From Blackboard, WebCT or Moodle
  • Managing Group Projects Online
  • Sharing Course Materials Across Institutions
   
In 2004, I rewrote and updated Internet in the Curriculum (for Berrien County ISD) with faith integration (with permission) for AVLN as Internet Research and Projects. I mentored other teachers in teaching it, but never taught it myself for AVLN or Berrien County ISD after that. Internet Research and Projects
