This portfolio contains a collection of my instructional technology experience, a culmination of 12 years of secondary and post-secondary instruction, an M.Ed. in Instructional Technology from the University of North Florida, and doctoral studies at the University of West Florida in the Instructional Technologies advanced cohort. Evidence of concept mastery within the field is arranged according to the domains of instructional technology as defined in Instructional Technology: The Definition and Domains of the Field (Seels & Richey, 1994), which the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) endorses as the proper knowledge base for the field.

Instructional technology is the process of planning, implementing, and evaluating teaching and learning in terms of specific methods and objectives, based on theory and research in human learning. Theory and practice are the core of the discipline and inform the instructional technologist’s decisions in each of the five domains of instructional technology (below).
