Session 2: Getting energized with GoodLife

Feeling like you could use a boost of energy to add some pep to your step? Presented in partnership with GoodLife Workplace Wellness, this insightful session will delve into the topics of life balance and happiness. This session explores how our age and life stage affect what makes us happy and balanced, as do our personality, our upbringing, and life experiences. Since life is ever changing, let’s explore together and find out what may (re)energize you to keep going strong!

Session 3: Engaging your students with online presence

Session 3: Engaging your students with online presence

Community is an antidote to the isolation that results from teaching and learning online, where learners and facilitators are separated from peers in terms of both place and time. In this session, we’ll review relevant research about online communities and online presence, and reflect together on how we can apply principles of effective online presence to make our online communities more engaging and gratifying. Presented by Kate Andrushenko, who is currently pursuing her Doctor of Education degree and wildly passionate about online learning, this session ought to hit a home run!
