About Me

As an instructional designer (as well as in his previous work as an English instructor to speakers of other languages), Ryan has worked to provide greater access to learning and higher rates of achievement for a diverse set of students.  Ryan believes that students often pursue online learning not only for its flexibility but in order to be engaged in their own learning in ways previously not possible.  He enjoys being an instructional designer since it gives him the opportunity to learn new technologies, work with faculty towards the best possible learning experience for students within a more student-centered model of education, and help students achieve their goals.  Ryan associates with the UTPB value of Extra Mile Service partly as a result of his years of experience as an instructor, which has led him to believe that shifting towards more active, student-centered learning usually entails a greater degree of work and dedication.
