The Big Picture

Max Anderson in UICOM Auditorium

I tend to get a lot of blank stares when I respond to the question: “what do you do?” People usually mis-hear and think I said ‘industrial engineer,’ ‘interior designer,’ or something on that variation.

I am currently the Director of Instructional Design and Learning Innovation at the University of Illinois College of Medicine (UICOM).  Previously, I was the first instructional designer hired at the college of medicine, and my current role is also the first position of its kind at the university.

I am a PhD candidate at Northern Illinois University in Instructional Technology investigating acceptance and use of educational technology in medical education.
