INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGN

In 2020 I will receive a master's degree in Instructional Design and Educational Technology through the University of Utah. Instructional Design is the field dedicated to analyzing, designing, developing, implementing, and evaluating technology-based instruction for educational contexts. This includes the theoretical issues associated with technology-supported instruction and the applications of technology to support best-teaching practices. The instructional design "ID" component of the master's program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to identify learner needs and goals and to develop instructional systems to meet those needs and goals. (Department of Educational Psychology, IDET Website, 2019)

EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY

The educational technology "ET" component of the program provides students with knowledge and skills necessary to create technology-based learning environments in which learner needs and goals are met with and supported by technology. (Department of Educational Psychology, IDET Website, 2019)

PROJCET TITLE
Undocumented Students and Utah College Access

DATE
August 2019 - May 2020

RELEVANT SKILLS
ADDIE, Adult Learning Theory, AGILE, Articulate Storyline 360, Project Management

DESCRIPTION
The capstone for my Instructional Design & Educational Technology Master's degree. This project was created as part of the University of Utah's Community Engagement efforts for classwork, where class credit is given for projects and work that benefits the community. This capstone project was created for the University of Utah's Dream Center, to assist training high school counselors and advisors onworking with undocumented students who wish to attend college.

The project was created over a nine month period and incorporates all aspects of instructional design processes including:

  1. client goals and needs
  2. learner analysis
  3. developing objectives and subordinate skills
  4. content development
  5. low and high fidelity prototyping
  6. user testing
  7. assessment and evaluation plans

The final product was created using Articulate Storyline 360. It incorporates warm colors, clean aesthetics, and a narrative based instruction utilizing "student stories" in order to make the content more engaging personable than the original training that was offered.

DIGITAL PUBLISHING

The Eccles Library Digital Publishing service supports the activities of the University’s faculty, researchers, students, and library staff by publishing, organizing, displaying, preserving, securing, and providing access to digital resources. The Digital Publishing site provides access to information, including scholarly output, curriculum support materials, digital collections, historical records, and other digital objects that provide enduring value for scholarly endeavors.

As the program manager for Digital Publishing at the Eccles Health Sciences Library, I work extensively in archives, digital publications, open-educational repositories, and digital exhibitions for the University of Utah and partner organizations.

NOVEL (Neuro-Ophthalmology Virtual Education Library) is a discipline-specific, open access repository of digital materials (images, video, lectures, articles and animations), to be used for educational and research purposes by health care professionals, educators, patients, and students. NOVEL is a collaborative project between the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library, University of Utah, and the North American Neuro-Ophthalmology Society (NANOS). I have worked extensively on this project in tandem with my colleagues at the Eccles Library.

The CORE is a curriculum based repository of educational materials on ophthalmologic practice and care, optimized for dissemination. Content for the CORE website is selected from Moran’s 7,000+ yearly ophthalmic surgeries and more than 100,000 patient visits each year. More than 250 resident lectures, given during the first two years of residency will be available for CORE users, as well as many of our Grand Rounds presentations—as learning and reference tools.

I worked extensively on this project from the very beginning collection development stages to the current maintenance of the website. We utilized Wordpress and YouTube as our primary asset managers for ease of use, shareability, and discoverability.

WEB DEVELOPMENT

As a millennial, it's no surprise that a majority of my life has been spent online. Since 2003, I've created and run numerous websites for a variety of purposes. Since 2011, I've worked professionally on creating and managing websites including this one you're looking at!

USER DESIGN & EXPERIENCE

User experience and design is one of the most important foundations in the work that I do. If a user can't easily, seamlessly, and intuitively interact and understand the content and system then more work must be done. Before reaching a final product it's important to continually prototype and make iterative changes starting with low-fidelity prorotypes, working towards more elaborate and functional high-fidelity prototypes. Finally, even a finished product must be subject to extensive user testing before a final release. While time consuming, the information gleaned from this deliberate process reaps rewards down the line and I am a firm believer in this process.

Low-Fidelity Prototype (Utah DERM)

RELEVANT SKILLS
User Experience Design, Prototyping, User Testing, System Wireframing

DESCRIPTION
The Utah Dermatology Education Resources and Modules project began with a collection of 12,000 kodachrome slides depicting various dermatologic conditions being donated to the Eccles Library. The collection was then digitized and the idea to create an open educational repository based off the slides was born. This low-fidelity prototype showcases the beginning stages of designing the "slide viewer application" that would serve as the basis of the resource.

RELEVANT SKILLS

DESCRIPTION
After creating the low-fidelity prototype and testing with a dermatology resident, the protoype was further refined in Adobe XD. This prototype was meant primarily as a demonstrative piece, as opposed as a fully "functioning" prototpye for user testing. However, the user testing from the low-fidelity was crucial for the development of this high-fidelity prototype.

RELEVANT SKILLS

DESCRIPTION
To further prototype closer to a finished product, I developed an HTML/CSS/Bootstrap prototype in order to give our web development team a head start on building a working product. This high fidelity prototype was based on the Adobe XD prototype developed earlier.

VIDEO PRODUCTION

I have been involved in numerous video production projects, encompassing almost every aspect from set-up, lighting, recording, audio engineering, to editing and post-production. With photography being a hobby of mine, I take special interest in the video recording aspect and making the viuals as attractive and effective as possible. I especially take pride in the fact that for many of these video examples below I had to play every role in order to accomplish the final product.

I also spearheaded the Tree of Hippocrates Education Studio, a multimedia creation space for students, staff, and faculty of the health sciences campus to empower them to create better instructional materials for their classes, schoolwork, and special projects.
