Episode 7 – The human connection component of digital learning

In this episode, a colleague from the US, Tara Chavez, joins us to talk about reflections on the importance of the human connection component of digital learning and why it is important to keep this in mind.

Tara also touches upon being aware of compassion fatigue during times of crisis and how this is relevant to all colleagues in the age of a pandemic.
