Online Learning Design and Technology Competency Portfolio
I have over 28 years experience in information technology in multiple roles including programmer, systems analyst, business analyst, consultant, data architect, project lead, database designer, database administrator, among others. I have worked for large and small employers and clients in both the corporate and government sectors.
I have a recent B.S. in Interactive Media Design and will graduate in December 2014 with a M.S. in Education, Learning Design and Technology.
In 2011, I launched my own technology company, Yellow Hare Inc. As a business owner I have worked for large Fortune 500 companies and small businesses.
I believe that effective learning relies on a multidisciplinary approach integrating learning theory and practice, information systems methodology, communication design, and efficient technology.
I also strongly believe that we learn best when we are not only actively engaged in learning but also enjoying the learning experience.
My current goal is to leverage my experience, education, and love of video games into exploring the practicalities and theoretical implications of intergrating learning into games, especially video games. I plan to pursue a PhD in Education so that I can develop a solid research foundation and appropriate methods and strategies to further develop my theories on learning through games.
I am interested in partnering on short-term educational projects either through my business, Yellow Hare Inc, or as a 1099 contractor.
