The remote learning is not necessarily natural to me, however, I thought the way it was set up and executed was very thoughtful and helped facilitate balancing the demands of working full time (plus!).

The explanation of the donation conversation being a process rather than an event.  That's an integral part of the donation process, and it helped to see it differently.

Having a course specifically designed around communicating in the context of donation is helpful.

I have actually been doing this for a long time, but I think one of the things that has traditionally made me the most uncomfortable is the concern about needing to keep a conversation flowing.  I've learned in this class the value of pausing, sitting with silence and just being present.  I feel like I've learned a lot more about getting beyond my own discomfort to be completely available for my families.
