Hi, I'm Christa.
When it comes to work, I like to bring my sense of adventure to each course. I've long held an interest in the seemingly limitless potential for eLearning, especially in regards to providing safe environments for learners to explore their ideas. I am a former (cyber) school educator turned instructional designer and eLearning developer.
I have experience in designing and developing courses for learners of all ages that are engaging, yet meaningful. I use the ADDIE and SAM process in addition to backwards design. Projects that I have worked on have encouraged activating prior knowledge while incorporating engaging and meaningful layouts. Course outlines and storyboards have ensured that all trainings or courses are directly aligned to learning outcomes.
I'm an avid explorer and love to spend time outside. This sense of adventure has led me to Alaska, Maine, and now I am finally back home and based out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
