Working with academics, design online courses in higher education for effectiveness, engagement, and aesthetics.
I am a learning designer with Centre for Learning Design and Development at Athabasca University since February 2008.
Currently I am a part-time doctoral student of IMPDET-LE program (International Multidisciplinary PhD Studies in Educational Technology & Learning Environments) at University of Eastern Finland.
As a learning designer, I am very enthusiastic on exploring how to design learning environments for online courses in effectiveness; how computer and online technologies facilitate students’ learning; and what can best motivate and engage students online. I am very interested in personalized and adaptive learning, competency-based education, learning analytics, and other intelligent technologies. I believe education, rather than being a knowledge transmitter, should be a path of discovering and nurturing individual's talents and good natures.
