Hello! My name is Angela Meek, and I'm the Senior Instructional Designer in e-Learning Services. I work primarily with faculty who teach in Canvas, and I develop asynchronous training courses in Canvas for the variety of technologies used for online instruction at LC State. I also facilitate a variety of live workshops for faculty related to Canvas and educational technologies, and serve as the e-Learning representative on a number of campus committees. I've been in e-Learning since 2009. I have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from LC and a bachelor's degree in Visual Communication from the University of Idaho. I completed my master's in Educational Technology entirely online through BSU in 2013.
One of my favorite things about my job is the ever-changing nature of technology. There's always something new and innovative happening with Canvas and the online education world. I love going to regional conferences each year to network with other people in the Ed Tech and Online Education world. I always enjoy presenting at these conferences and learning from my fellow instructional design colleagues.
I'm also an adjunct teacher for LC; I teach Introduction to Online Coursework, which provides an overview of the basic Canvas tools, as well as strategies for being a successful online student. I've been teaching this class fully online for 5 years now, and I love being able to interact with students. I especially enjoy having "tech-hesitant" students and seeing them grow and develop into confident technology users by the end of the semester.
In my free time, I like to read (mostly fantasy and science fiction) and play video games. I'm also a table top roll player and am a novice Dungeon Master for Dungeons and Dragons. I enjoy board games, word games (Scrabble, Bananagrams) and puzzles. I love being crafty with my Cricut cutting machine, designing mugs, shirts, and cards.
