Michelle Laurie

A few weeks ago I co-designed/facilitated a learning event for BC Campus called “ The Online Community Enthusiasts Gathering “ This is an annual gathering of interesting people mostly from the Lower Mainland/Vancouver Island. This is a great a way to summarize the feeling and activity of the day – for those with video skills…something to consider in your next event. I learned a lot during the day and I am glad it’s continuing with the harvest.
