I am k-12 and college educator located in Central Ohio. I am a husband and father that has a passion for science, technology, and education.
Thank you for taking the extra time to visit and learn more about me.
I am looking forward to the next leg in my journey and the chance to tackle new challenges within training and in the coaching of others. I want to apply the skills acquired from years in education and my graduate program to bring the best out of people and in turn improve upon the organization of which they represent. A good fit for me would be in areas related to instructional design and instructional technology.
- Remote and hybrid learning
- Andragogical theory
- Virtual reality
- Research, writing and collaboration
Remote and Hybrid Learning
I feel extremely comfortable working in and designing instruction for a fully remote or hybrid environment based upon formal training within my graduate program as well as years of experience as an instructor for Ohio University. The experience in modular development and the evaluation of objectives found within should help in bringing out the best in people who I will help develop.
Andragogy is a fancy way of saying adult learning which was developed by Malcolm Knowles. I know how adults learn and have a familiarity with the best practices in getting adults to do so.
VR is a niche experience, and the future is not “now” but the momentum is moving in that direction. The area that I performed my research is how VR can be used to reduce communication apprehension (public speaking). I would like to expand upon the application of VR into other areas and feel that it can be used in other fields as well.
It took me a while to warm up to this idea but as I started to dig deeper through research and writing and begin to see the potential. I would love to take employee development and introduce game design and mechanics to help enhance the learning process.
Research, Writing and Collaboration
I have always been a researcher and accustomed to working in a collaborative, team-based environment. My graduate school experience has fine-tuned to be more concise and measured.
