Beth Bailey

Learning Experience Designer

Why I Choose to Work at Academic Innovation

Students thrive when their instructors have the tools they need to help them learn. I have a passion for supporting faculty to navigate the complexities of course design.

Current Roles/Previous Experience

As a Learning Experience Designer (LXD) in the Center for Academic Innovation, Beth approaches complex learning experience design problems collaboratively and with curiosity and compassion.

Beth completed her PhD in Learning Design & Technology in August of 2022. Beth has provided learning design support to instructors at undergraduate and graduate levels, and designed instructional materials to facilitate the transition between Learning Management Systems. Beth believes in meeting instructors where they are at, and celebrating progress at all increments.
