Instructional Designer, Survey Design Expert, Experienced Researcher

United States

The combination of my education and professional experience makes me the ideal candidate for your project. I am a Higher Education and Student Affairs PhD candidate specializing in Instructional Design and Human Performance. I have over 8 years of experience within higher education fulfilling roles in assessment, instructional design, and classroom instruction. My higher education roles have ranged from my work with the Center for Postsecondary Research where I advised a variety of institutions across the nation on their survey administration and helped to interpret survey results (NSSE, FSSE, and BCSSE surveys), to Campus Recreational Sports where I created risk management training modules for adult learners and streamlined assessment efforts, to the Division of Student Affairs where I created and led trainings on conducting assessment. Also, I volunteered to serve as a Teacher's Aid for a Master's level course, a Research Advisor to Master's students working on their Capstone projects, and as a Research Assistant to the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA). Most recently, I worked as a Higher Education Consultant whereupon I worked for a variety of public and private institutions as well as healthcare providers across the country. These experiences make me a well-rounded candidate with a skill set that can easily transfer to any field of study. Having a solid research foundation has enabled me to quickly identify key concepts and effectively interview subject matter expects (SMEs). My expertise in assessment strengthens the end-user experience and provides the client with meaningful data. I understand how to use effective classroom assessment techniques (CATs) to ensure learners remain engaged in classroom content, including but not limited to well-articulated student learning outcomes, interactive learning modules, and formative and summative assessments. I follow the ADDIE model when designing and developing course content and I build trainings in Adobe Captivate. As my PhD is in Higher Education, I understand the diverse demands and needs of today's adult-leaders. I also understand how to make learning engaging for the end-user and how to provide the client with meaningful data. I look forward to working with you and best meeting your project needs!
