Images and animations offer tools to visualize our content, but must strike a balance between ease-of-use and ability to prompt thinking. We read a study that tested the impact of prior knowledge and multimedia format on learning outcomes.
Later, we read a case study about an administrator navigating a toxic district culture. Guest Jenn Binis joins us to examine the flaws in how the author presents the story, and how we can approach leadership more just foundation.

We drink Abbey Ale, a dubbel from the Omme Gang Brewery in Cooperstown, NY.
Beer notes (thank you Aaron Mathieu):
Beer Style: Belgian Style Dubble
Bitterness: Low to mild ~20 IBU
Aroma – Dried fruit (raisins, currants, figs) and sublte caramel/brown sugar. As it warms, some clove and banana yeast esters are barely perceptible.
Appearance – Copper with a large, thick orangish-tan head. Heavy lacing. Heavy carbonation.
Flavor – Similar to the aroma, there are notes or raisins, currants, figs, and honey. Low to Mild bitterness.
Mouthfeel – medium bodied with medium-heavy carbonation, creamy with a spicy bite.
Overall impression – very effervescent, sweet Belgian style ale. Soft berry/dried fruit flavors and honey like sweetness come across in both the aroma and flavor. These notes linger through the fairly dry finish. As the beer warms up, banana and clove yeast eaters become apparent. Very easy drinking for the ABV as happens with any good Belgian.
What this beer can teach you about beer:
This beer can teach you what alcohol sweetness brings to a beer along with how a warming beer can bring out certain yeast esters. If you like this, you will enjoy exploring belgians. This is not my favorite belgian or even my favorite beer from this brewery, but it is a very good beer and an excellent representative of belgian-like, trappist style ales.
