Work with Me

Have you ever taken a course or pursued a professional development opportunity, only to find that it had limited relevance to your life and work? Relevance should be a central consideration for all learning program design. When you design a learning experience, ask yourself, will people remember this information? How will they use it?

A great deal of investment goes into the design and launch of a new learning program. If we want the learning program design to make an impact on learners, we must thoughtfully articulate the goals and carefully plan the implementation.

I can help you communicate your goals, design your learning program, and plan for effective implementation. As we plan and launch our programs, we will leverage new technologies and make decisions based on research about the ways people learn.
