Show Notes

Laura Gogia, MD, Ph.D. designs, researches, and engages in faculty development for digital learner experiences in higher education and continuing education settings.

We talk about how we learn and figure out how to evolve with our careers, gain new skills, and find our way with community and kinship. I’m grateful that Laura shared how it gets real when you’re trying to transition to a new professional path and you have to interpret how your talents and experiences are transferable. We discuss this shift and what it means to be employable in a job market that is outside of your domain of practice or area of expertise. I’m grateful for how shared her concerns, fears, expectations, and disappointments with finding a job that would be a good fit with her career goals and professional interests. Finally, Laura leaves us with a wealth of learning design resources and considerations from her current role and experiences.

“I was trying to find that community out there to help me with my learning. To make sure I was actually learning what I needed to do. To set my curriculum, to recommend articles, to talk about articles with, to bounce research ideas off of, perhaps do research with them... I was finding my classroom or my personal learning community.” ~How Learning is for Laura Gogia
