“Meaningful interactions are created from mindful design.
Design with the user in mind.“
Hi, I’m Pamela and I have a passion for learning, which drives me to chatting up SMEs and I love translating that into visually engaging learning experiences. But mostly I love helping people love to learn, because it should be an enjoyable experience.
I can do this because I believe in the benefits of user-centered instruction, which puts the user’s interest first and acknowledges an individual’s participation as central to the learning experience. And it helps that I also have a background in visual design and am proficient in the utilization of multimedia elements for learner engagement.
I hold a Master’s Degree in Educational Media with an emphasis on Online Learning and Professional Development from Appalachian State University and a BFA from the prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design.
I’ve held positions in Higher Education as an Instructional Designer and in corporate climates as an eLearning Developer. I have a unique approach to learning solutions, which means I am open to career opportunities in Instructional Design, Learning Experience Design, and eLearning Development.
