Bio

If Micah Day had to be summed up in three words, those words would be simplicity, patience, and compassion. Even though complex situations and tasks occur in life, these three virtues aid in resolving problems. Simplicity, patience, and compassion are virtues that create change.  Micah Day supports the idea that if you desire change, then you should “be the change that you wish to see in the world” (Mahatma Gandhi).

Doctoral Goals

The goals for my studies with IDT Memphis are to:

  •      Focus on the business facet of IDT (Corporate, Medical, Military).
  •       Assist others on various projects.
  •       Help with the T3 EdTech Showcase
  •       Build an impressive portfolio full of artifacts (projects, papers/journals).
  •       Have publications in multiple scholarly journals.
  •       Complete the program within 3 years.


Professional Goals:

1 year:  After graduating, I would like to be working with a corporations/companies Instructional Design team.  I plan on being a member of several ID communities/organizations.  This should be useful in keeping up to date with new trends and best practices.

3-5 years:  Within 3 to 5 years, I intend on being in a higher management position.  This position may include being the supervisor over a team, or even a department.  Also, if feasible/permitted, I would like to write about significant findings I might come across from my job.

10 years+:  After having a plethora of experience, I plan on becoming a consultant.  My primary goal is to open a small consulting firm; however, before opening this firm, I would like to write a book.  Perhaps I might even enjoy teaching a few college courses (preferably online).
