Instructional Design

I am an instructional designer with an educational background
in and passion for graphic design, art history, and fine art.

WITH A DASH OF CREATIVITY

I am an Instructional Designer with an educational background in and a continuing interest in graphic design, art history and fine art. As an Instructional Designer at Rowan University, my primary responsibility is to facilitate online and hybrid course development and instruction using Canvas by Instructure. I work with faculty in all of the different areas of study across campus including business, communications, creative arts, education, psychology, science, and sociology. Through my professional work experience, I continue to explore my enthusiasm for graphic, web, and multimedia design. Over and above my essential responsibilities, I am assigned special projects that range from designing Rowan Global’s websites to developing video tutorials to designing brochures and advertisements for Rowan Online’s events.

Because I have embraced technology, particularly digital media and communication, in addition to traditional artistic media, art history, and education, I consider myself an Instructional Designer with a unique combination of skills.
