I am an independent researcher, computer programmer, and instructional designer. Here you will find information about my past and current projects. If any of this sparks an interest, feel free to send me a question or comment via the contact page.
Instructional Technology Research
More than a decade of original research in a variety of topics in instructional technology taught me to analyze complex systems, identify user needs, apply basic research where appropriate, create appropriate designs, and produce system designs that lead to improved educational outcomes.
Systems Thinking in Training and Education
Systems thinking is the basis of many of the tools I like to use for the design of learning environments. The following graphic illustrates, in a simplified way, how systems theory evolved into systems thinking, and how the systems disciplines can contribute to training and education today (click on the graphic to expand).
Currently I am developing algorithms for use in training simulators, where the user interface is designed to condition the learner to follow expert cognitive processes, improving the acquisition of skills and knowledge.
