More About Me

🌟 Lifelong Learner Extraordinaire

I am a proud life-long learner. I am a self-motivated intrinsically driven ‘being’, who loves solving problems and keeping up to date with all things edtech.

🎓 My Journey: From Engineer to Instructional Designer 

I hold an undergrad degree in Electronics Engineering, a discipline that honed my problem-solving and design-thinking skills. My passion for learning and helping others to learn led to a Master's in Education specializing in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Learning, Design, and Technology. As an ISTE Certified Educator, I seamlessly blend the art of learning and the magic of technology to create captivating learning experiences. The nexus of learning and technology is where I thrive, mindfully integrating both for a transformative learning experience.

💡 The Art and Science of Learning Design

With over six years in the realm of learning design, I've crafted learning experiences for diverse audiences, from  adults to K-12 students. I don't just create content; I architect immersive journeys that ignite curiosity and drive meaningful change. My approach is grounded in design-thinking and learning sciences theories, ensuring that every learning solution is as engaging as it is inclusive.

🛠️ My Creative Process: Unveiling the 'Why'  

At the heart of my creative process lies an unwavering commitment to addressing the 'why' at every step of problem-solving. I address this through research and action-mapping tools. A constant feedback loop and rigorous evaluation ensure that I never lose sight of identified objectives. My instructional design process begins with understanding the 'why', and it continues through meticulous design and thoughtful refinement.

🌐 Designing for All: Inclusivity as a Guiding Principle

In a world that is ever-evolving, I strive to create inclusive and accessible learning experiences. My work is not just about aesthetics but also about ethics and privacy, ensuring that the tools and materials selected align with responsible practices. Paying attention to detail is not just a habit; it's a way of life for me. And, above all, honesty and integrity are the cornerstones of every project I undertake.
