Welcome to my Portfolio

Designer and developer of online courses and training solutions

"The mind is not a vessel that needs filling but wood that needs igniting" Plutarch

I am a freelance instructional designer having spent most of my working career in the education library environment developing scaffolded learning modules.

Conceptualising and developing creative training and awareness solutions based on sound learning theory (such as ADDIE) is what I do. My process ensures full engagement with both client and content ensuring an exciting learning experience.

My project range covers corporate, academic and social responsibility courses including microlearning opportunities.

Why me you may ask? Because I work on every challenge until everyone is happy with the outcome!

My Instructional Design Process

Consult

This is the most critical aspect of the whole process as it defines needs, expectations, who is involved, time lines, and outcomes. Also, the type of learning intervention which will make a difference and how the success of it will be evaluated

Conceptualise

With clear objectives in place this is the time to conceptualise how to scaffold elements to make sense of a learning pathway. These need to incorporate input from subject matter experts in such a way that the technology ensures an engaging process


Construct

Using the storyboard as a starting point developing the solution is dependent on the tools chosen. The more time put into the planning the more effective and slick is the development process. There needs to be a degree of flexibility

Create

The final creation will be more effective and slicker dependent on a number of iterations and reviews. The success in the process is the marriage of a number of factors i.e. translating concepts and content into tangible and lucid pathway which is authentic and relevant
