The 3 R’s Revised: Relationship, Relevancy, and Rigor

Christine Caton, PLA Faculty Member @ Marylhurst

Christine Caton, our relatively new PLA faculty member, wrote this great essay in the latest version of Marylhurst’s Adult Learning Newsletter. As she reflects on her own learning to teach online, she challenges us instructors to establish and maintain relationships with our students, to provide relevancy, and to ensure rigor in our online teaching. As you might expect, I think her ideas apply to all learning situations — online, face-to-face, hybrid, formal, informal, etc.

Read it here (it’s on page 2) – it’s a treat, and you’ll be glad you did!

I LOVE that Christine is my colleague.

I love even more that she’s a learner!
