The Power of Blended Learning

Dear Bettie:

Full confession: I’m a do-it-yourselfer. A digital native, I rely heavily on readily-available, at-my-fingertips Internet information. I frequently learn from YouTube. I’m firmly footed in the attitude of “if I can’t find it on Google search, it’s not worth knowing.”

Guest Blog By: Greta Perel, Ph.D.

Network for Relationships; Not Need

Network for Relationships; Not Need

Dear Bettie Boomer:

For more than 10 years I have happily worked for my college alma mater.  Based on the values in which I was raised, working in an environment that fosters learning, fellowship, social responsibility and faith has been rewarding and fulfilling. I’ve felt secure in my professional community and haven’t seen a need to network […]
