We wouldn’t be able to do what we do at Continuing Education & Contract Training (CECT) without our instructors.
Each week, we will be sharing a short interview with one of currently teaching faculty, so you can learn more about them.
Today, we are interviewing Niki Campbell, an Instructor in our Computer and Digital Technologies area.
What courses do you currently teach and how long have you taught with CECT?
I have been teaching individuals how to build their own websites using WordPress at Camosun since 2015.
My new online course WordPress - For All Levels is an opportunity to dive deeper into content that is hard to accomplish in the classroom. In this course, I provide the full road-map to website creation. It’s self-paced with video-tutorials and opportunities to connect online – all with the goal of solidifying your understanding of each step of the process. And of course I’m sprinkling in a couple of interactive Zoom sessions for learners to discuss and get clarification on course topics.
What excites you the most about teaching?
Teaching is about possibilities; especially when it comes to learning something technical. I find that people get so overwhelmed by technology that they always think that they’re doing something wrong.
At my core, I thrive on the relationship between complexity and simplicity. I love to take seemingly complex topics and distill them down to make them feel accessible to the learner. It moves people away from fear and into a much more playful state. And when you are able to play with ideas, it contributes to your confidence and sense of ability. I love contributing to that.
