Teaching is a passion of mine.
As a graduate of MSc in Instructional Design with an emphasis in Online Teaching and Learning, I’ve been teaching online professionally since 2004.
From 2004 to 2008, I taught approximately 50 college-level essay and paper writing online courses as an adjunct professor and tutor at Western Governors University. The curriculum introduces students to the types of writing and thinking required at the university level.
Students practice writing that emphasizes academic arguments with acceptable references. They exercise writing and revising assignments with proper grammar, mechanics, research documentation, and academic styles.
WGU was an initiative of and founded by 19 U.S. state governors. However, it’s a fully accredited private university, not a state university.
In June 2021, I started UX Writing Institute out of a longing to found a micro institution where students from all over the world can learn about UX writing. As of mid-October 2021, it’s the beta phase, where final rounds of tests are still taking place before it’s officially launched.
Eventually, it will offer UX writing-related courses, such as chatbot writing, microcopy, CX writing, UX research, and helpful tools and apps. The first offering is a “crash course” in UX Writing Principles.
