Welcome to the professional website of Dr. Bethanie Hansen, Teaching Excellence and Professional Growth Strategist.

What does a teaching excellence and professional growth strategist do?

This is my special niche of helping subject-matter experts teach online with excellence and continue to grow in areas that draw on their strengths and abilities. I do this  by sharing personalized tools and strategies I’ve developed and collected, learning about people, and listening. It’s exciting work that brings learning and development for those I work with and keeps me growing, too!

If you’re looking for help teaching online or teaching music appreciation, you’re in the right place! Take a look at the Online Teaching Lounge podcast produced by American Public University and shared on this website to get started. The podcast supports online educators in their great work of changing lives through the power of education at a distance while living a balanced life (available through Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify, iHeart Radio, Audible, Amazon Music, and other platforms).

If you’re looking for more ideas about thriving rather than just enduring in your work as a subject-matter expert and leader, please visit my companion website DrBCoach.Com and the Mindset for Life podcast devoted to those subjects.

The same things that led you to teach or perform music can also work well in online education as you share a passion for teaching or music with your students.
