Consistently I have heard that Jayne is a ‘level up’ instructor with obvious empathy. She doesn’t interrupt to correct but gives people the space to think and try. She lets individuals decide if they want to answer rather than calling on people too often. These actions have created more safety and allow for risk taking. The class loves that Jayne brings interactive exercises to the class which the people I spoke with said is the most fun and valuable part. People are having fun while they learn and the time is flying by–to me, this is the best indicator.
Monika is a tremendous resource and an excellent collaborator to work with. Monika, who often hosted the Tech Tuesday Meetups in Toronto, is a superb facilitator. She brings a great deal of knowledge and insight on the creative use of technology for adult education. She is able to convey complex technical concepts in way that is interesting and engaging. Monika’s communication style makes those around her feel comfortable, and that is very conducive to sharing knowledge and experience.
