New member here - my name's Jim, and after a few years as a stay-at-home dad, I'm beginning a new career in instructional design. I was fortunate to find a good master's program at UMUC, and I'm just about to graduate! I found this forum, and I'm wondering if anyone wouldn't mind having a look at my newly-designed portfolio (here's the link) intending to show the world my skills.
As far as philosophy - I'd say that my emphasis is placing the learner at the center of authentic experiences designed to help them connect what they're learning/experiencing with what they already know, and to do so in as engaging a manner as possible. I hope to be a collegial problem-solver, a fun co-worker, and to do some good in the world.
Thanks in advance for any feedback you might have to offer me!
