A monthly resource exploring ideas and resources at the intersection of learning, leadership, and nonprofits.  

Dear Friends: 
It's been a busy month, and I am really excited to tell you some of what I have been working on. I have been collaborating with three rockstar trainers-- Guila Muir, Andrew McMasters, and Arthur Padilla-- to create an online course, How to Teach Online. Please help us spread the word! 

I've also been working with Sarah Brooks in the beautiful Methow Valley and JoAnn Crabtree along the majestic Columbia in Vancouver to produce a new podcast, the Nonprofit Radio Show. We have had so much fun creating short conversations for small nonprofits. You are the first to have a chance to listen! 

More information is below. Thank you for all you do! Be well--


The Producer Role: Ensuring Online Success

Imagine an in-person workshop...

The speaker is setting up materials in the front of the room, organizing her props, and making sure she has her crisp opening ready to draw people into what she is planning to teach them. In the back of the room, a trusted partner is welcoming people, getting them a name tag, troubleshooting technology, and making sure anyone with a special need is attended to.  

An online event has the same two roles—presenter and producer.

Featuring Guila Muir, Andrew McMasters and Arthur Padilla

COVID has moved learning online. You may have already been delivering webinars and want to hone your skills. Or maybe this world of online learning is new to you and you want to find out how to do it right. “How to Teach Online” is designed to give you the knowledge and tools you need to deliver online learning that makes a difference.

Over three 90-minute online sessions, you will learn from three nationally-known experts on workshop design, leadership, and learning. You will receive materials and assignments before and after each session to give you a way to practice what you learn. You will complete this series with a “no fail” framework for any online class, an approach to instruction that is engaging and effective, and tools to live your commitment to diversity and inclusion. The series will be moderated by Nancy Bacon, a veteran nonprofit educator who believes that every nonprofit learning experience should be excellent and action-focused.

INTRODUCING: The Nonprofit Radio Show

I'm so excited about a new project that we have just launched: the Nonprofit Radio Show. Sarah Brooks, JoAnn Crabtree, and I are producing a podcast  with bite-size, practical information to help nonprofits thrive. We will celebrate the small nonprofits that serve our diverse communities across Washington and nation. Our first shows have just been posted to our website. We would love to know what you think!

Scarcity and What We Can Do About It

I've been working on a financial literacy project over the past month. It is helping nonprofit leaders respond to the economic impact of COVID. It is reminding me of both the scarcity mindset that nonprofits live with and the limited understanding people outside the small nonprofit world have for the reasons why leaders make the decisions they do.
