Hello. I’m Sheila.

I’ll teach you to design powerful presentations that engage audiences and move people, create effective surveys when you need high quality data, evaluate your educational or professional learning and training programs, and use data visualization to communicate your results!

Professional Learning by any other name…

What is “professional learning?” It’s improving and building your professional capacity. It’s acquiring new skills, dispositions, and capabilities, and ultimately boosting job performance.

You may know professional learning as:

  • Professional Development (or Pro-D)
  • Staff Development
  • Training
  • Learning and Development
  • Continuing Education
  • In-service
  • Workplace learning

While some of these have more specific definitions in certain fields, they all have in common educational opportunities for advancing and enhancing professional practice. And that’s the work that I do…

“Learning and teaching should not stand on opposite banks and just watch the river flow by; instead, they should embark together on a journey down the water. Through an active, reciprocal exchange, teaching can strengthen learning how to learn.”  — Loris Malaguzzi
