Building my visually literacy

Through some work I was very lucky to do a few years ago I learned about the power of neuroplasticity – the power of our brains to adapt and learn new things in new ways. This summer I am using my neuroplasticity to work on some things to help me hit the ground running when …

Learning the back-end

I had the chance to register for a workshop put on by Ladies Learning Code last weekend. It was a workshop on HTML and CSS coding. These are things that I have wished I knew for a while but never took the time to teach myself. The workshop was a full day, held at Shopify …

I first heard about the concept of MOOCs listening to CBC radio and decided to take a look at Coursera and see what was on offer.
