Pat McCulloughWelcome! I am an instructional designer with 10+ years worth experience in education, curriculum development, learning design, and educational technology. I have extensive LMS experience as well as proficiency in course authoring and other e-learning tools.

My Expertise: I design and develop curriculum for instructor-led training and e-learning for various Learning Management Systems (LMS). I have a scholar’s eye for detail, an educator’s passion for learning, and a technologist’s drive toward practical solutions. My particular expertise is blending sharp, clear explanations with collaborative, learner-centered, inquiry-based learning.

How I Do This: Through thoughtful interviews with stakeholders, educators, subject matter experts, and learners, I perform a careful needs analysis and create learning objectives for the course. In collaboration with others, I develop dynamic and engaging courses that align with those learning objectives, often in an agile way and through rapid prototyping. I integrate evaluation into the process through both formative and summative assessments, as appropriate to each course or project.

Who I Am: Above all, I am a lifelong learner. I am not satisfied to be a singular specialist studying hyperspecific information for decades on end, but constantly look for ways to connect old areas of knowledge and skills with new ones. I am also an empathetic, collaborative leader capable of delicate interpersonal mediation. I thrive when working closely in diverse teams. And, finally, I am passionate about social justice and racial equity, which have been common themes in my personal volunteer work, my research, and my teaching.

I look forward to working with you! Please feel free to contact me. You can also find me on LinkedIn.
