Hi! My name is Teresa MacBain and I’m a graduate student at Samford University in the teresa picInstructional Design and Technology program. I work as an instructional designer at Samford as lead consultant for the professional studies online and blended courses.

I’m an innovative and passionate instructional design professional with specializations include eLearning design and development, adult learning, virtual training, distance learning, and project management.

I take an inventive and methodical approach towards instructional design to enhance adult learners’ development, resulting in improved course materials, better student engagement, and an improved learning experience as well as personal self-fulfillment.

I’m skilled at needs assessments, course design, content development, program evaluation, collaboration, project management, and process improvement. Industries include higher education and nonprofit organizations. Topics of design include Canvas LMS course design, on-boarding, customer service, sales, new hire, soft skills, leadership, and systems.

I’m best suited for a creative role that allows me to implement adult learning theory, employs decision making, and includes design and development of eLearning, blended, or instructor programs and solutions.

I have a B.A. in Organizational Leadership from Samford University where I graduated summa cum laude, and I’m currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology and Design at Samford. I hold certifications in worship leading, Website Development, Project Management, Canvas LMS, and Microsoft Office Expert.

As a wife of 31-years and mother of three boys, I still find time to lead worship at my church, wander off into nature with my trusty camera, or get lost in the pages of a great novel.
