Welcome!

This site is intended to showcase my teaching, instructional-design, eLearning, leadership and other professional work. My love for instructional design began in the planetarium where I worked as a professional astronomer to design, build, and present astronomy classes for hundreds of learners. I used the planetarium dome as my classroom and used fully immersive, live-rendering 360° software to build my lessons. These lessons were taught in real time, meaning, I had to operate the visual aspects of the planetarium dome while teaching!

 

Professionally, I aim to further develop my skills as a science communicator and encourage curiosity, inclusivity, and diversity in STEM fields. I am excited to be working in informal education and eLearning. My goal is to ultimately work for a library, science museum, or other educational institution to promote science literacy through the use of interactive technologies. I believe that interactive and quick mobile technologies for informal education is the future of education, and that a quality education should be free and widely available to everyone. Additionally, I believe that hands-on, interactive technologies that encourage curiosity are the best way to inspire young learners.

I'm an independent instructor and have the privilege of working remotely from anywhere in the world. I am constantly looking for ways to expand my skill set. I have a master's degree in learning-design and technology, and a bachelor's degree in astronomy. I am a first generation college student and I appreciate the fact that students have very unique learning styles. I aim to help improve U.S. science literacy and inclusivity through the use of exciting, interactive technologies.

 

Currently my favorite software suite to utilize is the Articulate E-Learning Software and Authoring Apps. I also have made several courses in Canvas Learning Management Platform by Instructure. I can build websites and embed courses within websites for clients.

 

With my master's degree in information and learning technologies I'm qualified to work for corporate and higher-ed environments and in other educational workplace settings. I’m able to develop training resources via traditional e-learning outlets: self-paced modules, fixed-paced courses with LMS support; webinars and live events; and multimedia learning resources.

Some of the position titles I am interested in include: eLearning Instructional Designer, eLearning Designer, eLearning Developer, eLearning Content Developer, eLearning Producer, eLearning Specialist, Digital Learning Specialist, Manager of eLearning, and Instructional Designer. I am eager to be a valuable asset to my community, and to help build the future of education.
