Thank you Annie!
I checked it out, and very happy to see some resources there.

Do they have a slack channel to keep track of all the events, job openings and such?

Hi folks! My name is Laura Dowling. I’m currently an adjunct instructor at Gwynedd Mercy University. I’ve been teaching at Gwynedd since 2007. I also have 20 years of corporate experience. I bridge the gap between corporate and higher education combining education with training (upskilling and reskilling) to unlock student and workforce opportunity.

My passion is fusing theoretical and practical knowledge with IT and workplace well-being strategies to enhance hard and soft skill development, equipping individuals and organizations to successfully navigate complex business dynamics in the rapidly changing world of education and work.

Hey Roxann!
I loved your intro! You were the one who referred me as a coach for NovoEd, and I will be eternally grateful for it! I loved your well-thought two tenets (we should add them at the LXD Community tenets, as we continue to build it. I was in the midst of changing work environments, and I am happy to report that I have accomplished that!):

  1. Resisting the status quo, feeding, feeling, and invigorating a flow of vibration and energy of excitement when designing exemplary learning experiences.

  2. Recognizing and affirming the importance of embracing a positive mindset, being keenly aware of the enormous benefits of catalyzing online and offline LXD learning experiences, as credible and valuable in teaching and learning environments.

I guess I would add that, following a method that places learning objectives as the first ideas to guide the course development process is highly important, where learning objectives are grounded well in theory and practice but are susceptible to revision.

Hi @Gustavo !
Congratulations on your new position! It is wonderful to have these opportunities of collaborative exchange here in the LX Community! I’m grateful for your compliments :). I am in total agreement of your additional suggestions too! It is definitely the awareness of the high importance of iteration and revision, to be kept in mind, as it is a process as you keenly point out :).
SO happy to see you here :).
Let’s meet up in the near future to catch up :). I’m seriously podcasting for a global SEL collaborative too.
