Hello! Welcome! I'm Cael Cohen, award winning university educator, eLearning expert, philosopher, educational researcher, passionate storyteller, rock drummer and birder. (To avoid confusion, thought you should know that in June 2015, I legally changed my name from "Cael Diane Zorn" to "Cael Cohen.") I speak frequently to national and international audiences on technology and eLearning in higher education, eLearning innovations, and my Enactive Approach to education. I am also often invited to speak on my enactive redefinition of the Impostor Phenomenon, that challenges current understandings of it as a psychological or cultural trait. Check out the topics below to view some examples of my speaking engagements and workshops. Check out my CV.
