Prior to applying to Georgia State’s Instructional Design & Technology (IDT) master’s program, I conducted face-to-face classroom trainings as a training specialist for about a year. I enjoyed my position, however I realized I preferred designing courses as opposed to facilitating classes.
I started my career as a lab manager while I was an undergraduate at Southern Polytechnic State University (now known as Kennesaw State University’s College of Engineering and Engineering Technology), providing faculty with technology and development training.
After graduating with a bachelor’s in Computer Science, I started a website and graphic design firm. I worked on ecommerce sites, flyers, promotional materials and event websites for about five years before deciding to pursue a master’s degree.
