PIDP 3260 – Week 8 – Post PIDP Development Plans
After my PIDP I would like to attend many IT industry events to bring the very best back to my institution in addition to my current industry experience. I will be working hard to learn all the new emerging trends and IT technologies by taking new courses and certifications.
I will do this by continuing to stay up to date with all the new offerings from the Linux Foundation projects, Redhat, Cisco and many other IT companies and platforms.
I will be spending even more time in the Open Source community, including the Linux Foundation that I am a member of to find ways to promote the spirit and benefits of open source solutions in my course.
The master plan will be to bring my new experiences, knowledge and PIDP instructional techniques in a way that enhances my teaching even further. I will produce more infographics and videos using PowToon and do more podcasts to enhance the learning experience. I will particular focus on IT based remote learning technologies and use software like “AnyDesk” to virtually connect to the PCs of my students so I can assist them with their labs and exercises.
I believe the future path from PIDP is bright and that it has been a positive and self-affirming learning experience that will be vital to succeeding even more in the future. I never take it for granted whether in the classroom, boardroom or server room that everything is a constant learning experience that requires constant improvement and reflection.
