A Scientific Approach to Information Systems Consulting
I have a track-record of successful information systems product design with an emphasis on creative solutions for complex challenges. The following are some student comments on a hybrid classroom and computer-based course in military systems acquisition; I was lead designer for the course:
"Really liked the combination of CBT (computer-based training) and in-class training."
For a brief review of the Instructional Design methodology I use in the design of training and educational information systems, along with short descriptions of some of my past projects, check out the Instructional Design Consulting White Paper.
Applied Research & Writing
My research background includes development of a research-based design process and the design of experimentally proven instruction. I am happy to share my experience applying cognitive science and systems research findings to real-world problems. This includes assistance with grant or other funding proposals, as well as assistance with study design, data analysis, study write-up or research-based articles for blogs or other websites.
Software Design & Development
My background includes everything from developing software demos of new concepts, to full application development. I have worked independently, as a team member and as project manager building a variety of applications on a variety of platforms for a variety of industries, including business, military, and K12 education. I work comfortably with Web-based, PC, Mac or Linux platforms.
