This blog is about my professional interests, which include elearning, classroom instruction design and facilitation, and organizational development. I have a B.S. in health care administration, and have spent my entire career in health care. Through several different roles (some focused on learning, some not) I have several years of training and instructional design experience.
In my my current role, I’m leading an academic medical center through a journey from good to great elearning.
In addition to elearning, I have also developed and delivered classroom training, blended learning and informal learning materials to help employees become more proficient and efficient. Sometimes I worked on small-scope, quick needs, and I was often asked to lead organization-wide training projects. I use the ADDIE (analyze, design, develop, implement and evaluate) model to create learning opportunities, and Kirkpatrick’s levels of evaluation as a framework for formative and summative evaluation. When warranted by a project, I also use Lean Six Sigma concepts (such as DMAIC) and general project management techniques.
I have worked in roles where Microsoft Office was the primary development tool, and in roles with more powerful tools such as Captivate and Articulate Studio. I am a master of maximizing my resources and sharing tricks and techniques with colleagues. I enjoy the challenge of figuring out how to do the best work possible with what I have, but I also like to keep up on new technologies and approaches in learning and development.
