Distance Learning Modules (1-Hour Webinars)

Instructor: Laurie K. Baedke, FACHE, FACMPE

Laurie will (a) develop the content for each one hour webinar, (b) to design a curriculum for each of the four phases to include two to three corresponding pre- and post-webinar readings (articles from HBR | Gallup, etc.) or complementary TEDTalks that enhance or expand on the content delivered, and a one sheet worksheet that contains reflection questions for consideration by the participant following the session. In this way, we don't limit the content engagement to just the webinar itself, but instead allow for additional learnings or possible group interactions on the Collaborate Platform.
