Karen's praise for colleagues' work
"As a career trainer and instructional designer, I found Patti Shank’s Write and Organize for Deeper Learning fascinating! I’ve cobbled my knowledge of good design from years of experience and believed I was doing the best I could. I was wrong! The strategies and tactics here did two things: confirmed what I thought was right so I can keep doing it, and helped me correct and improve. I recommend Patti Shank’s Write and Organize for Deeper Learning for instructional writers, trainers and anyone who wants to teach for understanding. My writing is already clearer."
“A must-read for any trainer or presenter who wants to successfully engage learners in an online classroom environment. From selecting software tools to designing interactions that make the best use of available software features, this book covers it all.”
"The Successful Virtual Classroom: How to Design and Facilitate Interactive and Engaging Live Online Learning"
By Darlene Christopher, CPTD, Senior Knowledge & Learning Officer, World Bank
"Darlene Christopher’s The Successful Virtual Classroom guides new and experienced trainers to orchestrate high-impact virtual training. It takes a comprehensive, holistic approach, covering not only the what — features, functionality, and team roles — but also the how — design, facilitation, and global considerations. The Successful Virtual Classroom draws on different types of research, including insights gleaned from the author’s interviews with more than 20 chief learning officers at Fortune 500 companies, nonprofit organizations, and the U.S. military."
