Donna Young is a lifelong learner and graduate of Kepler College. After 30 years of marketing and advertising sales at a major daily newspaper, she hung up her shingle as an astrologer in Calgary, Alberta. She is dedicated to growing her local astrological community and is involved at a grassroots level in ringing astrologers together to share their language and experiences. Along with other Astrology organizations in Alberta she helps to coordinate a small but mighty provincial conference, teaches classes at a local level, offers private tutoring, and lectures to the community at large on the wonders of Astrology.
Kepler Instructors are chosen for their expertise in academic and astrological knowledge and for their ability to effectively teach what they know to others in an online environment.
They must be able to produce quality instructional materials that enhance learning by using multiple strategies and approaches. They need to understand how to work with students remotely, and to develop the trust and respect of their students and colleagues.
They also need to stay up-to-date on new developments and examine the interplay of the new and old. And they must be willing acknowledge their own biases so they can present their students with multiple perspectives.
