Open Forum – Brent talks Rings of Focus, Carlita Godsey Drops In

Today on TLDCast we had an Open Forum. So, as you can imagine, the conversation is unpredictable and today was no exception. But it was true to form and the community came through once again with some thoughtful ideas and experiences.

What makes an Open Forum Day even better is when someone from the community volunteers to jump into video and participate as a guest. Carlita Godsey (@learningTek) joined Brent today and they discussed some of the challenges she is facing in her new role within a non-profit. The chat room had a lot of great feedback for her as we learned more about who her audience is and what type of learning infrastructure she is looking to setup.

We also talked about the Rings of Focus briefly today. Brent has not mentioned them in a while and it’s always good to relook at them and understand the different parts of the work that we do. You can find the graphic here: https://www.tldc.us/RingsOfFocus.png
