    United States - Last active: 05/12/2014 - Tests: 6 - Portfolio: 6

    Do you need someone to Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement, and Evaluate (ADDIE Method) training courses? Do you want to make sure your learners get the most out of those courses, and that you are getting the best result possible for your dollars spent? You need me. I have degrees in marketing (B.Sc.) and education (M.A.), and am a current part time doctoral (Ed.D.) student where my area of research is on maximizing long-term learning outcomes from training programs. This gives me a strong foundation of math, statistics, research methodology, and teaching pedagogy to build on. I have a strong publication and conference presentation history, and I am happy to share my knowledge of learning pedagogy and materials development with anyone. I also have a proven history of materials development, having published more than 20 textbooks used in millions of lessons every year. I have trained thousands of employees in skills such as business communication, regulatory compliance, technology usage, adult learning pedagogy, and even retail sales. I started my teaching career in Japan, and soon became a lecturer at Waseda University. There, I really developed as a teacher and learned firsthand that results-oriented teaching was best. As I got better at teaching and knew more about pedagogy, I started getting hired as a consultant for various companies in Japan. I was able to bring great success to all my projects, and soon was consulting for Global Fortune 500 companies such as Nissan, Nippon Steel, and Teijin Pharmaceuticals. I always approached each client’s situation with open eyes and a solid understanding of how people learn. Years later I was given a chance to lead a massive retraining initiative for a chain of schools in Japan called Gaba, which involved the creation of an entirely new blended learning curriculum, the introduction of the first online learning tools used there, and the training of more than a thousand teachers in how to use these new online tools and materials. This required extensive data collection, assessment, and description. I worked every day with both front-line teachers and senior leadership to achieve the learning outcomes we needed. After two years, the teaching and learning had improved greatly, and the new curriculum was working well. I then decided to return to the USA. Most recently, I was working for the U.S. Department of Defense, developing and presenting employee training in adult learning theory, learning materials development, and eLearning tool usage. There, I created offline and eLearning materials for employee education programs, and worked with subject matter experts to create software usage and regulatory compliance workshops for teachers.

    Kate Thomas

    Experienced Social Media Marketing & PR Manager and Blogger.

    United Kingdom - Last active: 10/18/2013 - Tests: 1

    First and foremost, I am extremely passionate about social media, PR and communications, particularly with creating new and innovative approaches to reaching out to specific audiences. I have recently completely my Masters in Interactive Journalism in the USA, which focused greatly on how to build online communities and inspired my final thesis. You can read my thesis on my website at Katethom.com. After I completed my Masters, I was the Social Media and PR Manager of a business in Reno, Nevada until my student VISA expired. I completely developed the Social Media and PR strategy at this company as there was not one in place when I accepted the role. Additionally, I was the Snow Squad blogger for Vail Resorts in Lake Tahoe for the 2011-12 Season, which gave me great insight into an approach to encourage blogger outreach and online traffic, and I was the Social Media Manager for Real Surf Trips in Costa Rica. I have always had a flair for communication and interpersonal relations, a skill that I developed through my employment as a teacher at both high school and undergraduate level. From managing a team of 13 teachers, I acquired the skill to work effectively with different people, adapting to their individual needs. The jobs that I have experienced to date have required me to wear multiple hats and juggle several responsibilities. Due to this I have learned to be meticulously organized and proactive. I am a diligent, flexible hard worker, passionate about my work and about staying on the pulse of community development online.

    Experienced corporate professional and writer.

    United States - Last active: 11/20/2014 - Tests: 1

    I am an experienced corporate professional (with military experience as a junior officer) that possesses strong organizational, writing and analytical skills. I have a Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) from Texas A&M University - Kingsville and was a member of the Army ROTC program where I was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army upon graduation. I spent 4 years as an Army officer and have a depth of knowledge of military writing style, jargon and acronyms. I have spent the past seven years working for a Fortune 100 company (railway transportation) and the past 3 years have been spent working as an administrative director for the largest division in my company (4000 employees) where I created formal responses and letters to upper management within my company, labor organizations we work with, individual employees as well as members of surrounding communities our company operates in. I have also traveled abroad (Russia, Cyprus, Spain, Germany, Armenia, Hungary, Austria, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Iraq, Oman, Pakistan, Mexico and Canada) and understand various cultures around the world. My position also required that I become the resident expert regarding the organized labor contracts that existed within my company. At any given time, I have been required to work with employee work groups that have five different labor contracts among them, each with specific work, pay and discipline requirements. I was responsible for editing a bi-monthly newsletter sent out to our employees, the web content for our division website and the weekly broadcasts that were sent via internal television channels. I also have extensive experience reviewing transcripts from disciplinary investigations within my company. My position as director of administration also made me an informal assistant to the general manager for my division (a railroad GM is equivalent to a vice president in most other companies) and performed tasks for him such as managing his calendar and travel plans, writing letters and emails on his behalf and representing him at meetings.
