Statement of Professional Goals

My professional goal is to use this Master's Degree, in combination with my background in graphic and information design, in a newly focused role in Instructional Design. I enjoy being an adult learner and I look forward to working with adult learners in either a postsecondary or workplace setting. I believe that my extensive background in taking information products, whether a factsheet, training manual, or Web site, from idea to implementation will prove a valuable base on which to build these new experiences. Because remaining current within any technology-centric field requires one to adopt the practice of continually updating one's knowledge base, I will also be furthering my informal instructional design education through ID-related forums, reading, and seminars.
