Hi. I’m Tanya Lau.

I’m an Learning & Development (L&D) practitioner (with an eLearning / digital learning background) from Sydney. I’m most interested in how people learn, and how we can facilitate learning and behaviour change. I’m also fascinated by organisational learning, design thinking, learning networks, innovation, creativity & change.

Passionate about:  Learning.  Exploring. Improving. Evolving. Being more strategic about how we approach learning design to maximise our impact.

This blog is a place for me to explore, develop and reflect on ideas, narrate and share my learning experiences and experiments. (See my first post for more who and what inspired me).

You may also find me doing stuff on  Twitter, LinkedIn, attempting to finish a Masters Thesis on Personal Learning Networks, or exploring better ways of learning & working through networks, conversation, collaboration & community through:

> Third Place – bringing together local learning professionals in Australian cities to share & learn

> #PKMChat– weekly twitter chat focused on personal learning and knowledge sharing.

> EdConteXts.org – global network of educators promoting conversations about education in & across contexts (site now retired but posts archived at https://mahabali.me/edcontexts/home/).

When I’m not doing the above, I love exploring nature with my family, dabbling with rudimentary permaculture practices in our (currently) haphazard urban edible garden, and preparing for the day we leave the city to live and work more sustainably, simply, and closer to the land.

    Tanya, I am a learning professional in Canada. I’m coming to Sydney in March to visit my daughter and would love to get together if you’ve available to talk more about your research. I too have a passion for exploring how people learn.
