My design process has evolved over time. Armed with tape, scissors, and the desire to custom fit off-the-shelf English language materials for my diverse classroom of adult refugees, I Frankensteined together worksheets based on an intimate knowledge of my learners' needs - not on any table of contents. Shortly thereafter, I left behind books altogether and developed my own course materials following the 5 design tenants of English for Specific Purpose: Needs Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation. My course design deliverables have taken form in a variety of contexts and products including paperbound textbooks for Security Forces, online learning modules for an international corporation, and Blended Learning workshops for faculty in institutions for higher education. I continue to expand and hone my design skills as a student of Instructional Design and Technology at the University of Memphis. The experiences and work samples below are a testiment to that journey.
