I pursue a variety of interests as a San Francisco-based writer, trainer, instructional designer, social media strategist, presenter, consultant—and lifelong learner. I explore, write about, and help others become familiar with e-learning, social media, MOOCs, mobile technology, and community partnerships (onsite and online) to creatively facilitate positive change within organizations. I also absolutely adore connectivist MOOCs, having participated as a learner in #etmooc (the Educational Technology & Media MOOC) and #xplrpln (the Exploring Personal Learning Networks MOOC) in 2013, and as a “co-conspirator” for #oclmooc (the Open and Connected Learning MOOC) in 2014. I am active at several levels in the New Media Consortium (including service on Horizon Report advisory boards/expert panels), the American Library Association, and the Association for Talent Development (formerly the American Society for Training & Development); earned an MLIS through the University of North Texas (with an emphasis on online learning) and an M.A. in Arts Administration at Golden Gate University (San Francisco); blog at Building Creative Bridges (http://buildingcreativebridges.wordpress.com); and can be reached at email@example.com.

What connected/open course or courses are you teaching or plan to teach?
Continually working on webinars, online courses, and blended (onsite/online) learning opportunities for clients and colleagues (e.g., https://buildingcreativebridges.wordpress.com/2014/05/17/location-location-and-location-hanging-out-and-learning-with-samantha-adams-becker-and-atd/); first work as a designer/facilitator for an open course was with colleagues in the Open and Connected Learning MOOC (#oclmooc) in fall 2014: https://oclmooc.wordpress.com/about-oclmooc/.
Are you participating in connected courses as an individual or with a local group of learners?
I generally join connected courses as an individual, but in September 2014 noted that an interesting innovation was occurring: some of us are informally grouping into open-ended cohorts of learning through MOOCs: http://www.nmc.org/news/open-innovations-etmooc-connected-learning-and-moochorts-lifelong-learners.
Would you like to connect with smaller groups over specific subjects?
Would you like to connect with a buddy?
