Coaches model and support educators to design learning experiences and environments to meet the needs and interests of all students.


I never thought of myself as a Learning Designer.  I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I don’t have formal teaching experience.  I have a lot of informal experience or maybe a better word is non-traditional.  I have “volun-told” as a teaching assistant for my mom in her K-12 courses and been an assistant in other similar volunteer experiences, but those moments didn’t allow me to develop skills as a learning designer. 

I do however, have  experience developing multiple onboarding sessions for student employees and held a variety of professional development sessions to help staff or faculty learn new technologies.  

The DEL program allowed me to explore this skill and connect more of my experiences together with the concept of what a learning designer is. Below you will find evidence, spread across four different subsections (indicators) of how I believe I am a Learning Designer where I work, even though I still don’t think of myself in this way.
