Hi – I’m Max Anderson. I hold a PhD in Instructional Technology from Northern Illinois University (2020).  I’m quite proud of this achievement as completing a doctoral degree is not for the faint of heart.

My dissertation topic: Assessment of Faculty Acceptance of, Behavioral Intention to Use, and Actual Usage Behavior of Technology in Inquiry-Based Learning in Medical Education: Using the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology. Yes, perhaps one of the longest dissertation titles ever. 

I am currently the inaugural Director of Instructional Design and Learning Innovation at the University of Illinois College of Medicine (UICOM).  Previously, I was also the first instructional designer hired at the college of medicine, at the Chicago campus, in 2013.

This website is intended to showcase some of my ID work and share my experiences in this field.
