The Design You Podcast Tobi Fairley | How to Design Your First Course with Rebecca Tapia

We’re still on our topic of online courses, and today I have a very special guest. She’s created a course about a taboo topic that gives her students real, tangible solutions. This is an amazing example of just how good an online course can be, and we’re diving into all of it, the behind-the-scenes, and the results this course has produced.

Rebecca Tapia is a physician-anthropologist-creative actively exploring and reframing the mental drama we have about supporting aging parents. She’s created an amazing course around her passion called Unsandwiched: 5 Steps to Managing Your Mental Drama About Aging Parents, and how she’s done it is truly inspiring.
