The pandemic has resulted in a lot of people losing jobs, or being asked to take on new responsibilities. And even without a global health crisis, sometimes we can all feel overwhelmed and burned out by the demands of our careers. I created this little video to remind us all how we can rebalance the […]
ATD eLearning SIG Meeting on The Rise of Web-Based Development Tools
On July 26th, ATD NYC eLearning SIG co-chair Mark Cassetta and I gave a standing-room-only session on The Rise of Web-Based Development Tools. Mark gave an excellent demo of the web-based tool Adapt.

On January 206h, my ATD NYC eLearning SIG co-chair Mark Cassetta and I partnered with Hal Christensen of the Performance Support SIG to offer another of what I’ve come to call “interactive roundtables”.
