Well, not the best of news, but myself and others at UTA are going to need new jobs before the end of August. Not COVID-related lay-offs, just FYI. Job leads (in DFW or remote) in the online learning/instructional design space are appreciated.

If you are looking for an experienced, badass edtech for online learning and more, well here you go. UTA's loss could be your gain, I mean who doesn't need someone like Matt right now? https://t.co/bH786WsoKD

Watch postings for Director of Instructional Tech/Online Learning and an Instructional Designer for College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY. We just lost pretty much our entire Online Learning Center in the last six weeks, so we'll be replacing those positions immediately.
