Designing E-Learning Modules
E-Learning has become a necessity for many organizations, and being able to create and maintain effective instructional content is imperative.
This module was designed as an asynchronous learning module that could be used by various organizations to fill a knowledge gap in EMS curriculum.
Webinar Design & Facilitation
Online education delivery has exploded in recent years. I have many years of experience designing webinar and online courses. I have created and facilitated online programs through UCLA CPC, Santa Barbara City College, and other agencies.
Creating an effective and engaging online course/webinar requires individualized analysis and design. I have used a variety of design programs and delivery methods to best fit the needs of each institution.
Instructor Development and Training
In order to provide excellent education, we need to ensure we have excellent instructors. While it would be wonderful if everyone was inherently gifted at instructing, we need to be ready to create an environment that encourages growth.
During my time working at the UCLA Center for Prehospital Care, I created a skills instructor training program that aimed to scale up the level of difficulty in instruction as the new instructor progressed. This was helpful not only for the instructors, but provided a better experience for the learners as well.
Note: This program was designed for the UCLA CPC and implemented during my time as the coordinator for the hybrid EMT course.
Curriculum Design & Program Development
I have experience designing and developing curriculum for agencies that have both internal and external stakeholders. It is important to not only meet requirements set by regulatory agencies or entities, but also ensure that the needs of the learners and internal stakeholders are built into the program design.
Some examples of the considerations for learners and internal stakeholders are time frame for training, learner engagement, budget, and program evaluation and improvement.
One of the most important aspects of working in the medical field is keeping up-to-date on any changes and advances, and keeping skills sharp. I have designed and facilitated many continuing education courses based on requirements of the agency, as well as community needs.
Scenarios and role-playing can bring together key components of learning and give students a forum to demonstrate the application of what they have learned. Scenarios create an environment as similar to reality as possible in order to give students an opportunity to apply their skills.
