My name is Beatriz. I have a degree in German Language and Literature (Universitat de Barcelona) and a Masters in Learning Technologies for Language Teaching and Treatment (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia). I am interested in almost everything related to education and technology, but right now the subjects that are on my focus are blended and e-learning methodologies, the Inverted Classroom Model, authoring tools, Open Source software, Learning Management Systems, connectivism and MOOCS.

WHAT I DO

e-Learning Consultancy

I possess several years of experience designing and implementing e-learning solutions and have excellent knowledge of blended learning theories and the way in which e-learning can be utilised effectively. I also have experience in implementing knowledge assessments within e-learning content as well as in evaluating the effectiveness of e-learning solutions.

Instructional Design

I have academic qualifications in  adult education and can use a broad array of teaching techniques and methods to reach every learning scenario. I apply solid instructional design methodology and develop interactive activities and competency-based evaluations to produce high quality, interactive learning solutions, meeting with SME's to gather critical information for developing courseware.

Digital Content Creation

I design and develop blended learning modules using a range of authoring tools. The courseware I can create covers microteaching videos, videotutorials, RLO's, online activities and quizzes and tutorials. And I always applied a sound pedagogical approach in the design. I can deliver the digital content within a learning platform or through the web, in a mobile device or in a PC because I use HTML5 technology.

WHY PERPETUAL BETA?

Perpetual beta is a feature of software which is at a development stage for an extended or indefinite period of time. It is associated with the development of a service in which constant updates and improvements are the foundation for its usability.

I think this software particularity is a beautiful metaphor for humans and for life. We are (or should be) continuously improving and updating like these services. I will never be completely and perfectly finished.
