Last week, you may have noticed I didn't write a blog up. Welp, that was because a majority of my spare time was prepping for a virtual conference I was able to present at. As part of our ID2ID program, my partner Heather and I were selected to present on our work with Audio Feedback tools. I wanted to take a few moments to reflect on my presentation and how it went. First, I thought it was going to be a small conference (maybe 50 people in the whole attendance). The pres
I can't believe I'm at the endpoint of my ID2ID experience already! We are wrapping up the "course" but I'm looking forward to some projects and experiences that are after the actual end of the program. We may be 'officially' done at the end of this month but we have a presentation in the STAR Symposium virtual conference in the beginning of February. As described in a previous post, I was accepted into a professional development program for instructional designers through
During this time of year, we typically look ahead to our new resolutions and what one has accomplished over the past year. As I look back and reflect on my year - I'm really happy with what I've done. I'm even more excited about what there is to come. Looking Back I've learned a lot of tools over the past year such as Padlet, Poll Everywhere, EdPuzzle, and a lot of audio/visual feedback tools (more on those to come in 2019).

If you wait too long, you miss them Success is where preparation and opportunity meet. If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door. Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. However, have you ever just sat back and thought about missed opportunities? Have you thou
As part of the ID2ID experience I am taking part in this year, we (my buddy and myself) were asked to attend or participate in two professional development opportunities. We decided to write up a literature review on our topic of Audio Feedback. As such, we quickly realized we were having difficulty trying to find current research out in the field. We decided as a team that we wanted to reach out to our respective librarians to determine the best ways to collect research.
I can't believe I'm at the midpoint of my ID2ID experience already! At this point in the process, I wanted to take a minute to reflect on my experiences thus far and identify what my partner and I are doing well and what we need to work on as we move forward. As described in a previous post, I was accepted into a professional development program for instructional designers through Penn State University - the ID2ID Program. According to their website: "The ID2ID program provi
