Good Start

Bob, Dana, and Jake do a good job of presenting learning research in an approachable manner. Safety and belonging are important in a learning and working environment, and I want to read more about design thinking. They definitely got me interested in doing more reading on these topics, and I can see how this would apply in team dynamics at work and outside of work. Thanks guys!
