all about veronica reed
My personal mission is to connect the learner experience with overall employee experience. Employees who feel empowered to learn are more engaged within the workplace leading to better business results. In my volunteer role through the Association of Talent Development Dallas Chapter I helped to start the New to Talent Development Meetup which provides resources for professionals new to the field of Talent Development.
The Adult Learning Theory I identify with the most is Transformative Learning which is a component of the Andragogy Theory. Learners want to understand why they need to know this information and my job as an Instructional Designer is to create learner experiences that rouse the mind, stir powerful emotions and leave a lasting impression.
