    Surgery of the Spirit: Crushing Isms

    by
    The National Memorial to lynching victims opened last week. Sometimes it feels like the terror of the past never stopped. We just have Smartphones now to expose it. I’ve sat with heartbroken families and communities as they bury their beloveds today. My gut has gripped in fear that my male…

    What Starbucks Should Do Next

    by
    As I was reflecting on the bold move of Starbucks to close 8,000 stores May 29th to provide “racial bias” training I sensed the willingness of the CEO, Kevin Johnson to adjust the sails at Starbucks. I felt concern for him as he vowed "this will never happen again at…

    Winding down!

    by

    Phew. It’s March 28th, and that means that the 5th semester of the ILT graduate program is coming to an end for me. I’m not sure why I’m feeling a bit retrospective tonight, but I’d be lying if I said I was anything but ready to complete these last 5 …

    Instructional Design in Real Life

    by
    Now that I’ve finished grad school I am faced with the task of finding a new job, which is just slightly stressful. I had my first job interview recently for an Instructional Design job and it was… interesting to say the least. I’ve applied for jobs consistently for the last…

    Minesweeper 53, Dustin 0

    by

    Well, this cycle took me back to being 10 years old, and 12, and 17, and 21… and 29. Why? Because the game Minesweeper has haunted me for two-thirds of my life.

    I’ve got lots to talk about for this Play Journal, but before I get to my triumphs (or …

    The Courage to Change – MLK 2018

    by
    There is no great reconciliation, unity and peace to come without truth, without amends, without real apologies and ownership of wrongs. One cannot slap forgiveness unto pain like a Band-Aid on puss. It just won’t work. We are not wired like that. The wound must be cleaned first. When I…

    Communication – What Works

    Click on Picture for excellent tools to communicate effectively This is so true. I had a conversation with a client last year that taught me a valuable lesson in communication. We were working on a project with a killer deadline and a lot at stake for my client. I had…

    G.E.N.D.E.R

    by
    The #meToo movement moved me to create a course addressing gender equity. Companies often flee to sexual harassment training when gender roles, stereotypes, masculine codes, history, implicit bias and empowerment to stop harassment and inequity is what’s really needed. Women will soon be the predominate demographic in the workplace and…

    Draw More

    by
    I watched Graham Shaw’s Ted Talk and was really impressed by the way he was able to take something that seems so complicated to people and make it super simple.

    I know many people think they can’t draw but they can. Everyone can, it doesn’t mean it’s perfect, or going…

    For week three of 6710 we are discussing CARP, four basic principles of design. When searching for an infographic that illustrates good use of CARP I went to my Pinterest account and just scanned through all of my pins looking for one that stood out to me. I thought this…

    Fail Forward

    by
    Productive failure is already atrendin connected, collaborative, learning.  Research is mixed regarding learner center pedagogy and more controlled approaches. What we know for sure is we will win some and lose some in life.  Learning to fail forward is a win.

    Fear of failure is a common barrier…

    Of Koi and CARP

    One of the most common and familiar designs in traditional tattooing is the Japanese koi. He appears in a variety of ways on the human body, following the natural lines and patterns of the wearer’s skin, musculature and bone structure. He symbolizes overcoming challenge and adversity and represents a …

    Everyday CARP-ing

    by

    CARP in design work is essential to use to ensure that the product maxes it’s purpose for the audience. I could have copped out and said that CARP just makes things “great”, but I went with the more professional response. I’ve been in the INTE program for 3 semesters now, …

    How should companies respond to the Muslim Ban?

    by
    As concern about the impact of the latest executive order banning people from 7 Muslim countries from entering the U.S. grows, how should companies lead on this divisive issue? We can trust the research that integrity is of central importance to effective leadership.  Appearing incongruent will undermine your mission.
