Hi, I’m Megan!
I grew up in Newmarket, Ontario – about an hour north of Toronto – and was fortunate to have experiences that fostered my love for learning from a young age.
My first introduction to instructional design was building a board game as a study aid for grade nine students in my senior year of high school. I found myself drawn to designing learning experiences throughout my professional history, but it took me until my mid-twenties to discover the field of instructional design while working as a Research Assistant in Singapore.
Instructional design combines my greatest strengths of research, creativity, and empathy and channels them into my passion for education. It allows me to draw from my varied career experiences in biological research, quality assurance, and project management to analyze learner needs and develop learner-centred experiences.
I am currently studying Educational Technology at Concordia University and have a Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics from the University of Guelph.
