Building Creative Bridges

This blog reflects the training-teaching-learning work my colleagues and I do and the innovations we help promote: drawing attention to first-rate workplace learning and performance—training—efforts while also keeping up with technology and e-learning trends as well as with the sort of strategic planning issues which keep people at the center of the dizzying array of tools available to all of us. There is also an emphasis on building formal partnerships and community collaborations onsite and online.
