Who am I
Instructional Designer and eLearning Developer.
My name is Dan Gibson, and I am an instructional design and technology professional currently in an Instructional Design position for a financial institution. In this role, I design and develop custom instructional and performance improvement solutions for business units within the bank.
Over the last 15 years, I have trained, taught, coached, and developed performance support materials for various stakeholders within the public schools and corporate setting. I truly enjoy flexing my creative muscles and thinking outside of the traditional realm of education to provide effective, agile, and engaging solutions.
Learn, Create, and Iterate
Creating my own learning experiences is part of how I develop effective solutions for others, and this creation helps keep my skills fresh. My passion is thinking through performance problems or change initiatives in order to come up with creative, effective instructional activities.
This site is devoted to my own learning experiences. All too often, learning is only associated with specified learning events - like trainings, professional development, coursework, certificates, college degrees, online courses, and so on. Once finished with the event, learning seems to slow or stop.
Learning cannot be thought of as a single event; instead, learning should be thought of as an inherent part of life, which isn't relegated to a specific period of time or place. And so, this site is for my own reflective and creative learning projects.
Create to Learn.
