I started faculty training with University of Phoenix online last week. My logic in adding to my load is that I need more teaching experience to add to my CV. Having evidence of online teaching and on-campus teaching looks great. I’ve been an adjunct and student teacher supervisor at UNCG, but I have never taught online before. This training lasts four weeks. While I do this, I have to change the entire IRB application to show the changes I had to make to the proposal. I also have convert the school district’s IRB application to show the new proposal since I have to get approval from BOTH places. At this point, my plan is to get this proposal back to my mentor to send to the School next week. I can’t stress over it anymore. I’m really ready to move on to do my own research. I heard the IRB approval process can be a headache and I have two to look forward to.
To talk to me privately about this or any other dissertation-related issue, email me.
