Why I Choose to Work at Academic Innovation

I choose to work at Academic Innovation because it’s the place on campus where my interest in teaching, learning, technology, and applied research can be actualized to produce effective, efficient, and engaging online learning experiences. Combined with the fact that very smart, talented, skilled, and overall cool folks work here makes it that much better and worthwhile.

Current Roles/Previous Experience

I am a Learning Experience Designer and my job is to provide guidance and support to faculty in the design of online learning experiences. My current projects are in support of the new online Masters in Applied Data Science degree program. Prior to coming to AI, I spent 11 years working for a non-profit K-12 online learning organization in the course development area.
