IBM Cloud Essentials & Developer
Instructional Design & Instructing (In-Class): IBM Cloud Essentials & Developer Courses
Andrew took the slides from IBM’s Cloud Application Developer course and their Training Student Exercises to develop two courses for Bow Valley College, SODV9101: Cloud Applications Essentials & SODV9201: Cloud Applications Development for a classroom format. Since the audience was adults reentering the workforce, he focused on adult learning theory to make the content relevant, so they understand why they are learning the content, and kept them motivated with many short quizzes and assignments. He also included a variety of multimedia in the course slides including text, images, and videos, to help cater to different types of learners.
He later taught the two courses to a group of 12 learners at Momentum, a training center in Calgary, Alberta, over a span of 13 days.
What the Client is Saying
I really enjoyed IBM Cloud Essentials course. Our instructor, Andrew Forbes, was always optimistic and was always ready to help with any task. I have felt comfortable to ask any questions. Thanks to the calm and supportive manner of Andrew’s teaching we had a very positive environment in the class and I was looking forward for each day of this course.
