As an instructional designer for e-learning, I have led elearning solution projects in both corporate and academic environments. My experience with online learning comes from many perspectives. As an  online course designer, I converted onsite courses into a format appropriate for online delivery and designed new courses based on interviews with SMEs and my own research. As an online student, I journeyed through my doctoral work in Instructional Design for Online Learning, developing a community of practice among other educators in the process. Finally, as an online instructor, I have taught professional writing and instructional design classes for adult learners. I am interested in the development of learning communities, faculty development, constructivist learning environments, and problem-based learning. I am also actively involved with Quality Matters. Recently I have become interested in MOOCs and the connectivist approach to developing personal learning networks.
