Introduction & new career pivot

1 comment

Hello!

 

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!

 

Regards,

 

Jim H.

Hi Jim,

 

Welcome! I really liked your online portfolio. Specifically, I like how you included specific examples (with videos) of your courses. Well done!

    My name is Stephanie, and I'm currently coursing a master's degree in Instructional Design and Technology in the eLearning track. As part of the course I'm taking at the moment, I must interview an instructional designer and ask general question about the field. If you know of anyone I can get in touch with to conduct this interview, please don't hesitate to reply. I really appreciate your time and consideration. Thank you,

    Hello! My name is Jen and I will soon be graduating from Purdue's LDT program. I wanted to see if anyone else here is new to the field, remembers what it was like to first start out, or had changed careers. I am changing careers from college admissions to that of instructional design, so could use all the help I can get to set my best foot forward. One thing I need to work on is my portfolio; does anyone have any tips for organizing my work? Should I show everything or just a few things?

    Hello all, I am an Instructional Designer for the last 6 years. I was wondering if getting an AWS certification would strengthen my resume? Also, what other certifications are good to have on your resume? Thanks, R
