Dr. Laura A. Pasquini

On this episode, Katie is joined by Laura Pasquini, a seasoned learning designer, curious learner, and active investigator. As an early career scholar-practitioner, Dr. Pasquini’s teaching and research explores mentoring experiences, networked practices, online communities, student support/advising, digital professional identity development, and open online learning environments. She consults with various education institutions, non-profit and corporate associations on the stewardship of technology for designing networked learning, improving organizational culture, and enhancing open, collective projects. To encourage storytelling from peers, she co-hosts and produces two podcasts you can follow and find on Twitter: @InVinoFab and @BreakDrink. To escape from her digital life, you can often find her running, doodling, playing ukulele, and hiking with her pup, Jack.
