Meaningful changes with proven results

Expect a remarkable increase in learner engagement and skill enhancement, as demonstrated through knowledge and project-based assessments!

Over the course of my career, I have achieved significant results in improving employee performance, leading change, and enhancing learner retention, as demonstrated through knowledge and project-based assessments. Thanks to this experience, I am adept at anticipating and assessing learning and development needs and designing curricula and courses that align with learning or business objectives. I excel in creating and executing exceptional learning and development programs, which I meticulously evaluate using critical performance metrics. 

What are your learning goals?

 

My work involves evaluating your audience's needs, laying out a course outline with strategic learning goals, developing immersive learning experiences, integrating the course onto a learning platform, and evaluating your audience's performance throughout and after course completion.

 

I work closely with subject matter experts, stakeholders, and learners to ensure that learning needs are addressed excellently.

My specialties include...

1

Learner-Centric Design

In today's social media-driven world, it is imperative to develop visually captivating and user-friendly courses. I aim to maintain and meet learning outcomes while implementing design principles that capture learners' attention and keep them engaged. Additionally, I prioritize the most essential information and present it in a way that is easy to comprehend and apply.

2

Storytelling

A compelling narrative can hold an audience's attention and make a lasting impression. To keep learners engaged, it's essential to weave storytelling that aligns with their specific needs. Stories can stir emotions and create a bond between the learner, the content/characters, and the skills being taught. As part of my design approach, I skillfully employ storytelling techniques that enhance retention and facilitate the application of course concepts long after the learning experience.

3

Gamification

An effective method to enhance the learning experience is integrating gaming elements such as earning points and unlocking difficulty levels to increase motivation and knowledge application. Immediate feedback from this practice along with natural consequences for choices made are incorporated throughout the learning process. Unlike a knowledge assessment that learners take at the end of the course, this approach enables them to identify areas requiring improvement and support instantly.
