Hi, I am glad you found Dori! I am an instructional designer and educator. I grew up in Taiwan and moved to U.S. for graduate school. Lived in Illinois for almost 7 years and moved to California for the sunshine. I have 6 years experience of teaching pre-service K12 and ESL/EFL teachers on integrating technology in classroom and 4 years instructional design experience on online and hybrid learning.
My interest in learning and development started in 2011 when I was a master student taking a Computer-Assisted Language Learning course. I was astonished and amazed how technology can make learning becomes fun and engaging.
I have worked with many teachers and professors on redesigning their courses from traditional to eLearning format (online and hybrid). I develop training modules, produce tutorials, design job-aids, and conduct workshops.
I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Curriculum & Instruction with concentration on Instructional Design (Learning Systems Design and Technology) at Southern Illinois University.
