I currently work as an Instructional Designer and Instructor of adult learning. I teach our Subject Matter Experts how to become teachers so they can train others in their field. I also design some of these courses. Previously, I worked as an Instructional Technology Resource Teacher in a public school for students Age 4-11. I’ve also been a classroom teacher for 8 year olds. (In the U.S. it’s elementary school, 2nd grade). I did my student-teaching in Limerick, and Clonmel, Ireland.

Thank you. It's always good to know you're striking a cord :)
The change I was talking about was something that we did when I was Learning Technology manager at B&Q (I left last May). It's quite a long story, but I'd be happy to talk about it with you. Do you have any time Thursday or Friday?
It would be great to meet up at the conference and for you to rediscover some of your Irish roots! I work with Enterprise Ireland's eLearning team. There are about 10 Irish elearning companies attending the conference - as well as a couple of colleagues from Dublin and our Senior VP of eLearning (Sharon Kaliouby) is over from Boston. Sharon is speaking tomorrow morning but you should come along to the talk by Jonny Parkes from the Irish Learning Alliance (ILA) [The ILA ELITE Platform - integrating social networking in an e-learning world. Wednesday 28th January 2009, @ 13:15 Seminar Theatre 4.
It would be great to link up at that session?
