Udemy Instructor Community

January’s theme was New Year, New goals and we had a few discussions to cover goal setting for success as instructors in 2023!


This post will cover the events and discussions that we believe you will enjoy engaging in related to goal setting.



This month, we had a lot of engaging conversations that can help you strengthen your understanding of what’s to come for the holiday season as an instructor! Check out these subjects discussed in January:


Feedback Thread - How can Udemy help you achieve your goals? - Let us know about what we can do to help you achieve your goals for 2023!


What are some goals new instructors should have?- Share some knowledge to new instructors on how they should set goals as instructors!


What are you most excited about in 2023?- Lots of great things are coming in 2023! We’d love to hear what you’re looking forward to with this new year.



New Year, New Goals Coffee Chat

On January 13th, we invited you all to discuss goals as instructors! There were a lot of questions and discussions that can be helpful for those struggling to set reasonable goals for 2023 as instructors.


There was one question that was personal to each instructor so we won’t share the answers with the first question, but we did receive a lot of great feedback from the second question so we will share the responses here!

Here are the questions and responses had during the coffee chat:

What are your goals as an instructor for 2023?




Are there any ways to approach your goals without getting overwhelmed?

  • Have one large and long-term goal for the year, but break it down into manageable sizes so you can incrementally work towards that greater goal.
  • When working towards your goals, try your best to avoid distractions so you can focus on your objective. Areas to avoid when working include TV, your phone, etc.



Have some answers to these questions? Share your thoughts in the comments below 👇.

Our next virtual coffee chat will be hosted this Friday, February 17th at 10:00am PT. You can sign up for the event here!

AMA Featuring Senior Director, Product Management Jacob Coulter

We have a webinar every month featuring guests that are masters in the field we are covering. February’s webinar will cover SEO featuring some community champions! Stay tuned in the community for further updates!


Lastly, thank YOU for being a part of the community and sharing your experiences in goal setting and providing us feedback on how Udemy can help you achieve your goals!
