E-lecturing Is Not E-Learning

I'm often asked to review online learning courses and provide feedback to content owners. My feedback almost always includes this sentence:

Your video is a lecture … and it is too long!

According to researchers, adult learners hate lectures. Lectures also are educationally ineffective. Yet, classroom and online "teachers" continue to use them while expressing…

Learning Is Connected to Everything You Do

We all are products of our educational experiences. Those experiences influence the way we teach other people. It's safe to say that our view of learning is limited by our personal learning experiences. Whether you are a blogger, author, speaker, entrepreneur, homemaker, craftsman, business leader, employee, or anyone I left out, you have numerous opportunities to teach and…

Are You Full of Hope?

I Did It Now What?

I quit my job at the end of the month a week and a half ago. I left for a handful of reasons:

1. Salary 20% below par for experience and background

2. 1 hour commute each way and owner will not allow more than one day remote per week.

3. technology is disparate and legacy (I'm a software engineer)

4. I'm working on a team of 1

5. The company is not growing--since I joined 18 months ago most of the meetings are about how the company is not…

Prayer (part 1)

We talk about it all the time saying things like; I will pray for you or I will keep you in my prayers, but what does it mean to pray?

Well first of all it’s comforting to know that even the followers of Jesus had to ask to be taught how to pray “Lord, teach us to pray” Luke 11:1.…

Playing Bored Games at Your Job?

Oh no, Not the Pokemon-Go type games or anything like those. These are games we play when we stay at a job far too long for all the wrong reasons.

One of the things I hear consistently from many clients is how long they have been unhappy at their jobs. Many have stayed working in an area where they no longer experience joy, a sense of purpose or any contentment. They play Bored GamesFrustration Games,Blame Games and…

Health and Appetite: Clutter vs Control
