A Bit About Bethany…

smallnewheadshot

I am an experienced instructional designer specializing in higher education. I support best practices in all areas of online course design, and I’ve helped multiple schools produce engaging courses in a fast paced environment with tight, competing deadlines.

I’ve actually had several different career paths, but knew I’d found my true home when I made my way into the e-learning field. Serendipitously, the e-learning industry draws upon the widest variety of my skills and personal interests.

Prior to joining eCampus at San Jose State University, I worked in the Academic Support department at a company that specialized in online program development and deployment support for regionally accredited, non-profit universities and colleges. I worked closely with  instructors, college administrators, and other instructional designers to help develop and improve online college courses using current instructional design best practices.

I’ve been a passionate advocate for lifelong learning, however, well before getting into the e-learning field. I was self-employed for almost twenty years, with a background including creative performance, sales and marketing. During that time I was always reading books, taking courses and seminars, and I’ve been blessed to have had the opportunity to help train, manage, or mentor people in several industries; including real estate and the beauty industry.

I graduated from University of California Santa Cruz with honors, and I’ve earned my M.S.Ed. specific to online teaching and learning from California State University East Bay.
