I’m Christine, an instructional designer with an inquisitive spirit that wants to learn more about #innovation #creativity #crazyideas and #helpingotherslearn.
I don’t have a degree in instructional design, I don’t have 20 years experience, but what I do have is some crazy creativity and a natural ability in the area of instructional design. I have a certificate in Adult Education with a specialization in Workplace Learning; since I already do instructional design, I wanted to learn something a bit more strategic and a bit more organization focused. It has provided depth to the knowledge I gained from doing.
I started out in nursing school way back in the early 90’s and moved onto such adventures as ‘stay at home parent’ and ‘managing a clinic’ and ‘pharmacy technician’. Around my 33rd birthday, I got the crazy idea that I might want to actually focus and decide on a life’s work and attended a “find yourself” kind of workshop. I discovered, sitting in a dingy room with other people with no focus, that the one constant in all of my positions was that I liked telling other people what to do. I realized that I was far better at telling people what to do than actually doing it; surprisingly, I was *great* at it. And from there… a professional career in learning was born!
Ten years later I have a solid background in facilitation, training, instructional design and workplace learning. I love every second of designing learning solutions. Drop me a line or leave a comment – I’m always looking for others to follow.
