Lyn DeLorme, Instructional Designer
What do you love most about the work that you do?
Instructional design unites my passion for education with my love of all things digital. I especially enjoy assisting an instructor to master a new technology or making a strategy discovery that impacts their teaching practice in a positive way.
What’s the most unusual thing in your desk drawer or office?
Heart-shaped bulletin board tacks, in pink, of course
If you weren’t doing what you do today, what other job would you have?
I’ve always been fascinated with medicine, even since early childhood. One of my favorite bedtime stories was “Daddy, tell me how the blood goes.” My father would have to oblige with a tale of the human circulatory system, complete with anatomical terms like “capillary” and “alveoli.” I read medical journals and have assisted friends and family members to understand the information they receive from their physicians. I have considered medicine as a career.
