At this point, I have spent my entire career in academia. While I have found teaching to be a rewarding career, I am looking for a new position with different challenges and more opportunities for growth. I am particularly interested in transitioning to a position that uses my wide range of skills in varied ways; a company that has room for change in individual roles and duties would fit well with my love of learning new information and skills.
Because my skills are so widely useful, I’m open to taking on a position in almost any industry. I have taken steps to fill in my formal instructional design training by completing most of a “micro-masters” in ID through edX and University of Maryland University College. I am, however, also open to a shift into product or project management, and have been taking professional development courses to improve my project management knowledge and skills, as well as learn programming languages and tech product development processes. My one stipulation for a new position is that I am not willing to relocate; I love my current city and community, and I do not want to leave the Eugene area.
