But first things first, let’s get to know each other a little better! :wave: :handshake:

Please take a moment to introduce yourself—name, occupation, where you are from, your background, and why you are taking this course. Review your colleagues’ posts and respond to at least two(2) of your peers.

Best, Deepak (AS4ODFL In-country Course Inspirer)

Hello AS4ODFL,
I am Isireli, and I am a full time teacher. I am from Choiseul Province, Solomon Islands enrolled in this Fijian cohort. I am taking this because our school is looking into the possibility to offer our course through through online learning in the future because of the challenges that Covid-19 lockdowns has brought to schools in the country. I am very happy to be part of the group and looking forward to a community of sharing our experiences and challenges in the next 3 weeks.

I’m thrilled to see the ongoing conversations and e-meet you on this genuinely regional platform. We hardly get opportunities to discuss learning and teaching matters at a regional level, do we? So, let’s make the most of this course to connect and learn from each other. On the same note, I would like to introduce the Wisdom Community of Pasifika Teachers (WCPT), a virtual community of practice setup for teachers of the Pacific region to engage in constructive discourse and reflect on teaching and learning issues in the Pacific context. Please consider joining WCPT if you haven’t done so already :pray:. By the way, the following links provide a little bit more information about me :grinning:: https://pacificopencourses.col.org/cs4odfl/course-guide/facilitator/ | https://twitter.com/deepakvprasad
