Welcome to Meyer Learning

Welcome to the my website!

I am Matt Meyer, a Senior Instructional Designer for the Education Technology Services (ETS) group within the Teaching and Learning with Technology (TLT) unit. My primary role is to serve as lead designer and project manager for large course enrollment redesign projects. In this role, I get to engage with faculty seeking to redesign their courses to develop meaningful impacts on the learning process and subsequent outcomes. I also leads a team of ETS' instructional designers and help coordinate their learning design projects throughout PSU. I work collectively with the overall learning design community to discover, develop and communicate current best practices in various teaching and learning environments including online, blended and traditional classroom.

Prior to arriving at Penn State, I spent over 17 years in the private sector designing, developing and delivering custom eLearning applications as well as managing development teams. At my last firm, Infologix, I was the Director of Development of ELearning, overseeing the development and delivery of all custom learning deliverables aimed at mobile workforces across various industries including supply chain, pharmaceutical and healthcare. I came to Penn State in January 2009, making the jump to higher education seeking to combine my development experience in the private sector with the rapidly emerging learning solutions that Penn State continues to cultivate and offer.

I have a Masters of Science in Instructional Technology from Bloomsburg University's Institute for Interactive Technology (IIT) and a bachelor's degree in Business Administration/Marketing, also from Bloomsburg.
