This is helpful for me in thinking about my customers. The learning professionals who are the users of my tools are often eager self-motivated life-long learners. They have to inspire people who only learn when they have to.

Hmmm. I know the idea of playing with pictures is appealing to people partially for this reason. But as you point out, there is more to this. Looking forward to watching how you unpack the ideas.

Thanks, Christine--I'm actually deep in the process of writing these posts right now and excited to see what others think. I agree that a lot of us are self-motivated learners, so we've already found the positive core in all of this. But I'm wondering how re-framing learning with positive questions for people who feel less motivated might work. And completely agree about the visuals. I may do a separate post on that after I get some of the question stuff out there.

What an innovative approach to PD!

Thanks, Kristi! I hope you'll check out the posts this week and let me know what you think about how this could work!
