Why did you pursue a career in the instructional design and technology field?
I wanted to take classes in IP&T to improve my students experience in my undergraduate accounting courses. I think technology has disrupted how students access information and learn and I wanted to have time to "think" about innovations in higher education and what value I could add to the courses I teach.
What are some of your day-to-day responsibilities in your roles?
In addition to the time I spend teaching in the classroom, I develop curriculum, assessments, learning experiences, and present at conferences.
How have you found your jobs? What advice do you have for someone trying to find a job in the instructional design and technology field?
I don't know much about specifically getting a job in the instructional design and technology field but I would say, do good work and the work comes to you. Network, find your passion, and then share your talents.
In what ways did your graduate program prepare you for your career?
Collaborating in groups and working with others. The opportunity to learn from others and also being able to share my insights with others.
