Sr. Instructional Designer
My primary focus as the Sr. Instructional Designer at the Penn State DuBois campus is to support the initiatives that advance the learning experiences and environment that we provide for students and faculty. The faculty are assisted in producing projects that involve active student participation and collaboration through the use of emerging academic technologies. Through these initiatives, DuBois has made a commitment to provide its faculty the time, technologies, and staff support to make measurable advances toward a contemporary learning environment.
As the Sr. Instructional Designer I am responsible for aiding faculty development in the use of instructional technology tools, and following the instructional design process to meet the instructional goals of their courses. I work with faculty in converting a targeted area of their instruction to include alternate routes that will enhance active learning and integrate more student-centered, learning approaches, while also considering the incorporation of appropriate academic technologies. As the Penn State DuBois Campus ID, I work with faculty from all disciplines, and submit proposals and grants to organizations within Penn State and outside the university.
I am actively involved in providing and locating instructional opportunities for faculty to learn new teaching techniques and professional development, outcomes & program assessment, instructional design for all delivery methods, and in providing training in the use of a multitude of tools to deliver course content.
