This evening was day 1 of the OISE Computer Engineering ABQ course taught at EC Drury High School. I was energized to meet the talented and caring teachers taking this "First Ever" ABQ in this subject. As I suspected, the key theme will be sharing as we all come from diverse industry backgrounds and various teaching experiences. I will certainly hand off the teaching to those better qualified and will need to act as a coordinator as everyone follows their own path to becoming qualified. I think the class wiki will be fun and an interesting platform for sharing and delivering course materials. I look forward to reading everyones blog posts in the next few days and discovering their perspectives on day 1.
What's an ABQ? This is an Additional Basic Qualification course offered by the University of Toronto Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE). An ABQ qualifies a teacher to teach a particular subject at a particular level.
