I want to share my experience about the fun and frustration of working on a multilingual, multicultural, and multitalented team. It’s mostly fun, of course. But working across linguistic and cultural barriers presents a number of challenges. To help you understand where I am coming from, here is a little bit on the environments and experiences that shaped me: My mother tongue is German, and I grew up in Germany. I studied abroad in the US, met a Texan, got married, and after a few other stops, currently live in the suburbs of Houston – a hyper-diverse place in its own way. Also, I work remotely for SwissVBS.
What the Raptors Can Teach Us About Learning Design
It’s official. Raptors fever has taken over the country, and there’s no cure in sight. Here at SwissVBS, the infection has been acute. Our offices may be a brisk walk from Scotiabank Arena, but the way we high-five each other the morning after a Raptors win, you’d think we were located in the middle of Jurassic Park.
Since no one here can think about anything else right now, I thought I’d use this week’s blog post to reflect on what the Raptors 2019 playoff run can tell us about learning design. After all, if we’re all striving to be the best at what we do, who better to look to for ideas than the (soon-to-be) champs?
A quick note: as I write this, the Raptors currently have a 3-2 lead in the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors.
