Engaging professional development facilitator

I offer customized workshops and other educational events on a range of topics related to enhancing skills for designers, facilitators, faculty, consultants, and learning leaders. My approach to workshops and professional development programs is almost always multi-faceted, blending highly engaging “live” time (in person or via webinar) with resources, take-back activities, follow-up coaching and more. My work is well-grounded in the relevant theory and research in our field, and shaped to be practical, based on 30+ years’ experience in corporate L&D and 10+ years’ experience teaching academic courses.

Topics include:

  • Design thinking
  • Developing creative capacity
  • Talent development in the digital age
  • Scaffolding self-directed learning
  • Cultivating social learning
  • Curation strategies
  • Needs analysis
  • Instructional design
  • Facilitating online learning
  • Designing online courses
  • Performance consulting
  • Consulting and client management
