Instructor Carmen Saunders-Russell, from CSU Northridge, uses Canva to creatively share her instructor profile. It includes preferred pronouns, words that describe her as a learner, what motivates her to learn, her learning goals for the course, her experience about adult learning theories, and a fun fact about her that you won't find on her resume. Providing a detailed profile humanizes the instructor and creates a sense of belonging in the course.
