University Instructor (Current Employee), Nanaimo, BCApril 16, 2016
Pros: Working with teachers throughout BC and outside of the province
Cons: Resources and materials are purchased by the instructors themselves
Most enjoyable part of teaching adults online is the positive interactions with the participants/students and being able to coach, mentor and problem solve with adult learners about real work situations that have real meaning to them. Vancouver Island University has provided a fair amount of autonomy for the instructors to create a practical and meaningful course for students.

Greenhouse Technician (Former Employee), Nanaimo, BCNovember 19, 2015
Pros: Informative and Educational
Cons: Lack of leadership and structure.
The management could have been stronger, I find that employees will follow in a more dedicated fashion with a structured managerial system. It was a great place to become familiar with greenhouse technology and development. Under staffing was an issue, but I was able to overcome it by accepting the unexpected responsibility and running with it to my employers surprise no additional hiring was necessary.
