Me posing awkwardly for a photo

My name is Thanh Tran.

I started this blog as part of an assignment in a technology course I took at The University of Houston. After the course concluded, I kept this blog to share thoughts and ideas with other teaching professionals, and I kept it as a place for reflection.

I am an Instructional Designer at the University of Houston where I support faculty with course design and technology. 
In the past I taught elementary education for the district of Clear Creek in the Greater Houston Area. Then I participated in The Japan Exchange and Teaching Program where I went abroad and taught high school English for the Mie Prefectural Board of Education. I returned to Houston, completed my post-graduate degree in the field of educational technology, and now I work for UH in a department of edtech. 

My current job involves working with faculty on best practices for course design. This includes building and troubleshooting courses on a learning management system and designing resources for teaching. The last being anything from writing how-to instructions to designing an online teaching program. Aside from my full-time work supporting a certain college, I create teaching resources for my online store.

My professional interests are educational technology, literacy education, and English Second Language education. My personal interests are language learning, creating digital resources such as graphics or videos, animal welfare, and coming up with ways to spoil my dog, Buddy.

This blog is just my place for reflections on Education. I hope you will find the information here helpful.
