My name is Maria Toro-Troconis and I am super excited that you are reading this!
I have worked in the area of Digital Learning for over 20 years in Higher Education Institutions in the UK, including 10 years as Senior Lecturer and Head of E-learning at the School of Medicine – Imperial College London.
I am currently Head of Academic Research and Quality at Cambridge Education Group Digital where we are also using the CoDesignS framework.
I developed the Blended Learning Design Framework (BLEnDT©) at Imperial College London and the CoDesignS Framework at the University of Liverpool. I have produced several publications, including a chapter on the role of Blended Learning in the delivery of World Health Education as part of a systematic review of eLearning for Health Sciences Education led by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
I am the founder of the Learning Design Bootcamp in the UK. The Bootcamp provides an intensive four months programme for Learning Technologists and academics engaging in the design and development of a 15 or 30 credit module of their choice.
From my courses you will straight away notice how I combine my real-life experience and academic background in Digital Learning and Learning Design to deliver professional step-by-step coaching and training in the space of Learning Design.
To sum up, I am absolutely passionate about Learning Design and I am looking forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with you!
